Two and half thousand rubber ducks plunged down the river at Endcliffe Park for the annual charity Duck Race. The event, organised by the Friends of Porter Valley charity sees the ducks raise down the river, through the park and onto the playground. Sheffield Live! reporter Simon Thake put on his wellies and headed up stream.
