Our waterways need respect and support

What is it about 'summer' boaters?  Why are they in such a hurry?

One such boater actually tried to enter a lock on the Caen Hill flight without first opening the gate and knocked it off its hinges!  See Narrowboatworld.

Needless to say the Kennet & Avon canal is now closed at Devises.  I do hope that the boater in question is fined a suitable amount for preventing other boaters navigating through those locks, up or down.
