There's a shark in the water...

THE latest suspect scheme from British Waterways is a radio controlled shark patrolling its canals—to point out the dangers, reveals Victor Swift.

With its fin sliding through the water, it is believed it will give the impression of how dangerous it is for people to swim in the canals, and what is 'lurking below the surface'. How it does this I'm not sure.

It is being used all over the system, but could prove an attraction for would-be swimmers—leaping in and attempting to catch it.

How much it cost to develop, build, and to operate, is of course not revealed.
