Notts in a flap over blue duck sightings

Sharing your seat on the Skylink, nestled amongst the shoes in your favourite clothes shop or hanging out with Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest; the good people of Nottinghamshire should be prepared for an invasion of the blue duck kind.

Sharing your seat on the Skylink, nestled amongst the shoes in your favourite clothes shop or hanging out with Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest; the good people of Nottinghamshire should be prepared for an invasion of the blue duck kind.

From Arnold to Attenborough, Bulwell to Southwell, stealth distributers are setting ducks free in preparation for the launch of Nottingham's brand new TV station, Notts TV, at 4pm on Tuesday 27 May.

Nottingham Trent University is one of four partners involved in the Notts TV consortium, which also includes the Nottingham Post Group, Confetti Media and Inclusive Digital.

Anyone lucky enough to find one of the 1,000 mascots is asked to take a photo and share it via NottsTV on Facebook or @Notts_TV on Twitter.

The #blueduck craze has already taken off on Twitter with early sightings of the colourful characters lounging on the left lion, enjoying a local music gig and checking into a Lace Market hotel.

Broadcasting on Freeview Channel 8 and operating seven days a week, Notts TV will offer daily news, sport and weather, as well as a range of quality programmes from music and comedy, to history and documentary.
