THIS time the Grand Union Canal is closed at Kings Langley.

The failure of Nash Mills Lock (69) due to a defective balance beam on a top gate has closed the navigation yet again, Keith Gudgin reports.

It was stated that contractors would attend yesterday, Tuesday, but no further information has been issued.
