Wakefield Problem

There are reports of a problem at Wakefield Flood Lock on the Calder and Hebble Navigation.

The gates are apparently damaged and are currently shut, with no boats being allowed through.

The gates on Wakefield Flood Lock are normally left open but they are closed when water levels rise on the river to prevent flooding of the area alongside the lock cut.

Update 18th May:
It is reported that boats are getting through the flood lock today, but engineers are on site and there may be some delays.

More information will be posted when known.
