Weatherfield Canal closed after water shortages

Weatherfield canal was closed today following water shortages in the North West of England, the canal will reopen when enough rain fills the canal back up to safe levels. This follows the hosepipe ban earlier this month, and a ban on fountains and any other water features.

"It's a bit of a shame" said the local lock keeper "I wont be much use now, what with no one using the locks, I guess I'll have to get one of those city jobs then." Indeed you will, Mr. Alcohol Induced Lock Keeper!

Someone should tell the Weatherfield Council that as a rule, most fountains use their own recycled water, so are not wasteful at all.
