The bridge parapet has been knocked into the canal by a vehicle strike reducing the depth of the water below the bridge to approx. 1m. All boats are advised to reduce their speed going through the bridge and preferably to cruise through in neutral. The council, who own the bridge, will be removing the bricks as part of their repair.
