It may have been snowing and raining but that couldn’t stop Hebden Bridge from going quackers at the annual Easter Monday duck race.

Thousands of bobbing yellow ducks were tipped into the river to race to the finish line.

This year the winner of the duck race will be jetting off on a holiday to a four star hotel in Cyprus and even the winners of the business race will enjoy a city break.
