We have had several reports of recent groundings on the Upper Trent near Barton Island.  We believe that this is being caused by silt deposits which have been left after the recent floods.

Emergency dredging work is being planned in, but for the time being we are advising customers to proceed with caution.

We will update this notice by the 12th February or as soon as we have further information.
