It’s a quack-ing day in Peterborough, and it appears one family has not passed up the opportunity to take a dip in the Lido.

But this is no ordinary family, it’s a paddling of 10 ducks who have flocked to the junior pool for a few strokes in the sunshine.

The Lido, in Bishop’s Road, is not open for another fortnight, but that didn’t stop the ducklings from causing something a splash.

But it appears they may have already ruffled a few feathers as a man with a net was spotted standing nearby, ready to recover the little critters and send them on their way.
