To reduce water levels at breach site below Pollington Lock water levels from Ferrybridge Lock to Pollington Lock have been slightly reduced and the locks closed for public use.

This is a short term measure being reviewed on a daily basis. The locks and sections above Pollington Lock will be reopened as soon as this is possible. 

The section from Pollington Lock to Goole Caisson and Sykehouse Lock will remain closed.

Towpath closed from Pollington Lock to Went End Aqueduct due to bank slippage.
