Future of Pennine canals on Politics Show

Yorkshire's edition of The Politics Show last weekend featured an eight minute item about how the New Waterways Charity could affect the future of the area's canals.

The programme shows footage filmed at Standedge Tunnel, Bingley Five Rise Locks and Sowerby Bridge. It includes interviews with the Huddersfield Canal Society's Alan Stopher, British Waterways' Julie Sharman, Shire Cruisers' Nigel Stevens and Waterways' Minister Richard Benyon.

The item can be viewed by anyone in the UK by following this link to BBC iPlayer and moving forward to 51 minutes into the programme. It will be available to watch until 17th July.
