Vandals drain canal

Published: Wednesday, 26 August 2009

A pound of the Stourbridge Canal has been drained by vandals by the Red House Glass Cone attraction at Wordsley.

It was local residents who alerted British Waterways, with staff realising that paddles had been opened on the lock below draining the pound.

The raised paddles were lowered and water allowed through the above locks to refill the pound. This is not the first time this as occurred at the locks.
