'Curly Wurly' breaches

Published: Saturday, 02 June 2018

A CULVERT on the Wyrley & Essington Canal has collapsed causing a breach, with water draining away.

This happened today, Saturday, with the navigation now closed at Teeces Bridge and stop planks inserted to safeguard the rest of the waterway, Keith Gudgin tells us.

Not yet assessed

The situation has not yet been assessed, so there is no notification of the seriousness of the breach.

It is expected though that the culvert will have to be rebuilt.
