Pollution shuts part of Leeds and Liverpool

A pollution incident has closed part of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal between Wigan and Burscough. The canal is polluted at Appley Bridge, near Bridge 42.

In order to avoid spreading the pollutant and to enable cleaning-up to take place, it has been necessary to close the canal to navigation in this area.

The Canal and River Trust is trying to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. An update will be issued tomorrow, 18th December.
