Hand grenade closes waterway

Published: Wednesday, 20 February 2019

THE Leicester Section is closed at Kibworth as a hand grenade has been fished out of the waterway.

This was done by one of the now ever increasing band of magnet fishers, who reported it to the police who then yesterday closed the navigation, Keith Gudgin tells us.

No boats allowed

The whole area was cordoned off, including the waterway, towpath and surrounding area, with no boats allowed through.

An army bomb disposal team  is expected to be in attendance to deal with the grenade and the area again opened, and boats allowed to pass.
