IT WOULD seem that at last Canal & River Trust is getting organised with repairs.

CollarA lock collar that came adrift on a Kennet & Avon Canal lock it told was repaired in three hours of being known, Keith Gudgin reports.

Unable to hold gate

As can be seen, the bolt has come away with the collar adrift and unable to hold the gate, with the lock being out of action, but the 'team' the trust states, were on the job and it was repaired and the lock back in use within three hours.

This was Widmead Lock at Thatcham on the waterway, with the report and repair taking place yesterday, Monday.
