A LARGE tree that has fallen over the Llangollen Canal has blocked the waterway.

Boats stuck both sides

Arthur's photograph shows the extent of the blockage, with the massive trunk right over the waterway, that has caused boats to be stuck at both sides.

We have no intimation of it being cleared, with nothing from Canal & River Trust.


Tree now cut-up and cleared with the navigation open.
