Crowds flock to see `junk guzzler' Children go wild over waterways and washing machines.

HUNDREDS gathered to see The Giant Junk Guzzler among other sights at the Water racket festival on Saturday.

The 16ft floating fish, made from hammered out washing machine drums and copper piping, was sailing at Ellesmere Port boat museum.

The festival organised by Wild Over Waterways aimed to make children think more about Britain's inland waterways.

The event was the conclusion of a week of workshops and activities done by groups of children from local schools and community groups.

They created banners and took part in junk music workshops for performances during the day.
