Ducks get their own “duck lanes” in London

“We’ve painted in duck lanes on the tow path, just to highlight that there’s only so much space you can share and actually probably ducks need the priority,” Dick Vincent, a London Towpath Ranger told ruptly.tv

A safe of ducks has already been spotted trying out their new lane but whether or not they’ll always be so rule-abiding is another matter!
