Ripon charity Scuba Diving for All has announced a new date for its annual duck race on the River Skell after high water levels forced its postponement on Boxing Day.

The event, which is held outside the Water Rat pub on Bondgate Green, will now take place on Easter Sunday, April 8.

Trevor White, from the charity, said: “Scuba Diving For All would like to apologise for any disappointment but hopes everyone will realise that safety comes first.”

All entries purchased for the Boxing Day event will be carried over to the Easter Sunday fixture.
