Ducks galore scooped one lucky winner £200 when he scooped the top prize at this year's Budleigh Salterton Lions Club duck race.

Celebrating his winning duck was Dudley Oliver, who was followed by Peter Mason, who won £100 for second place.

Runners-up were Heather Paver, Rosemary Fletcher, Jake Murdoch and Faye Bristow.

Lions club spokesman Geoff Paver thank all who took part and helped. He said “Budleigh Salterton Lions would like to say a very sincere thank you to its sponsors, all those who bought tickets and attended the race.

“Special thanks goes to the local lads who walked the river for us. Without their help we would not be able to carry on with this event.”
