BREAKING NEWS: Ducks like rain

It's true, scientists have proved it - at the bargain basement cost to the taxpayer of just £300,000.

Defra forked out the cash to "ascertain the importance of bathing water to ducks by quantifying their motivation to gain access to water in which they can bathe".

The research was aimed at ensuring ducks are properly treated when kept indoors on farms.

Unfortunately there are no regulations planned which could require changes to the way farmers treat ducks. Important stuff.

The story was found by fellow regional lobby hack Matt Chorley who works for the Western Morning News.
