Description

Please be advised navigation between bridge 75a and 70, on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal has been temporarily suspended. 

This is due to the sinking of a boat that is blocking navigation.

A further update will be provided at 2100 on 07/04/23. 

Once the boat has been floated, navigation will resume.
