So long, Bubbles and Freddy; may your journey to Valhalla be a safe and pleasant one. 😉

Two goldfish have been given a flaming Viking burial boat send off by Orkney primary schoolchildren.

Primary 3 and 4 pupils at Papdale School in Kirkwall gave Bubbles and Freddy a traditional Norse ceremony to start their journey to Valhalla.

The fish become class pets for Christmas but both died recently.

The children, who had been studying the Vikings, wrote down their memories of the fish and read them aloud before the boat set sail.
