Who drained the K&A?

EARLIER this week a pound on the Kennet & Avon Canal was drained.

The BBC would have us believe that a boater left 'all the lock gates open' on the waterway near Seend, Alan Tilbury reports.

We all know that this is impossible, with a spokesman from Canal & River Trust blaming a boater 'in a rush' leaving all the paddles open, which we all also know is not feasible as the lock would not function with all its paddles raised.

A local internet source told that there were 'teenagers around the lock' which is the most likely reason, but now of course the trend is to blame us boaters for anything that goes wrong.
