Life Buoy or Swing?
Life Buoy or Swing?
I walked along the banks of the Derwent just east of Derby a few times towards the end of 2008 and noticed that there was quite a few of these life buoys amongst the general detritus. I assumed that vandals had been removing them from their posts and casting them in the river.

It looks like this one has made it a couple of miles further downstream before being retrieved.
