Keep the Trent & Mersey open

The reason is lack of water that instead of supplying the Caldon is being directed to the Trent & Mersey to keep it open for navigation.

The trust in monitoring the situation, but it will remain closed until there is sufficient rainfall to allow it to re-open for navigation, with further information not expected until next Monday.
