Canal Boat - - News -

A Canal & River Trust team were clear­ing up after a stop­page on the Re­gent’s Canal when their work boat hit an un­der­wa­ter ob­struc­tion so large that it brought the 45-tonne ves­sel to an in­stant halt. An hour’s work with a crane even­tu­ally re­cov­ered a large safe from the canal – empty and with the back bro­ken open. CRT’s Ste­wart Qureshi re­marked that with the pop­u­lar­ity of canals to­day, they weren’t “the best place to dump some­thing if you’re try­ing to get away with a crime”.
