A wall has fallen from 3rd party land, from the offside of the River Soar (Leicester Line) between North Lock 42 and Limekiln Lock 43.

The wall is now in the navigation amongst the vegetation.

Boats can pass but should proceed with care and keep to the centre channel as the wall still standing looks unstable.

This is being investigated by the local team and our engineers.

We will update the website by Friday 27th October or sooner if we have more information.
