A family of ducks have been filmed blocking the road in a town centre.

Footage shows the 14 ducklings and their mother being ushered out of the road by pedestrians in Driffield, Yorkshire.

A small crowd had gathered to watch the ducks as they made their way along the street.

A woman helping to move the ducks out the street can be heard saying: “Aren’t they absolutely beautiful?”

As the young ducks followed their mother to the safety of the pavement, one had to be helped onto the curb by the woman.
