A man was arrested for allegedly drinking cider from a can and swearing loudly at a rubber duck race in breach of an Asbo.

Daniel Beckett, 31, was arrested and charged for breaching the order in Emlyn Lane, Leatherhead, near the River Mole between 12.30pm and 2pm on Sunday.

At the event hundreds of rubber ducks were raced down the river from the bottom of Bridge Street and an entertainer kept children amused on the riverside.

The duck race raised money for the Leatherhead Christmas Festival and the Society of Model Engineers also offered train rides in Mill Lane.

Councillor John Northcott, portfolio holder for planning, said: "The duck race is a hugely popular event held each year and one which sees the whole community come together to enjoy and cheer on their chosen ducks.

"It’s a great day out for the family even if you haven’t sponsored a duck; there’s a host of fun things to see and do."
