Vandals prevent entry or exit to Trent at Nottingham

Published: Wednesday, 12 August 2020

FOR this week there will be no entry to or exit from the Trent at Meadow Lane Lock in Nottingham.

Vandals have done a great deal of damage, it is understood with implements capable of removing stones and bending the lock ladders, Keith Gudgin reports.

Pushed into lock chamber

The stones and other debris has been pushed into the lock chamber so it now required a crane boat to move it all out and make the lock safe for passage.

As the crane boat will not be on site until Thursday evening work will not be able to start until Friday, and with work also needed to secure the stones and lock furniture as well as straighten the ladders, no reopening date has been given.
