Waterloo Lake at Roundhay Park is set to be filled with 30ft long Chinese boats when the ninth annual Martin House Dragon Boat Race is held next mont.

Teams from across Yorkshire are invited to take part in the event, which raises money for children’s hospice care across the region.

During the event on May 15, boats with ornately carved dragon heads and tails can be seen being furiously paddled by the crews of up to 10 paddlers and a drummer.

Members of the public are being warned about about rogue websites advertising fake premium rate numbers for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals' cruelty line.
