Central Telegraph - - NEWS -

COUN­CIL work­ers more used to deal­ing with a dumped sofa or shop­ping trol­ley were sur­prised to find an aban­doned barge on an in­dus­trial es­tate pave­ment in the West Mid­lands, Eng­land, last week.

Sandwell coun­cil’s high­ways team sprang into ac­tion, tweet­ing: “Is any­one miss­ing a barge? This one has been left in #Smeth­wick, our war­dens are work­ing to find the owner as we need to get this moved”.

The so­cial me­dia ap­peal and other in­ves­ti­ga­tions man­aged to track down the owner who has been or­dered to get it shifted.
