THOUSANDS of people flocked to see the return of Matlock’s winter raft race.

Organisers say 15,000 people were attracted to the event and had a great time as they lined the banks of the River Derwent to cheer on a fleet of weird and wonderful creations.

The annual race was cancelled last year when a large tree tumbled into the river.
