Lock 22, Great Haywood, Staffordshire

Thursday 1 August 2013 until further notice

The Trust has become aware that there is an individual in the Great Haywood area of the Trent & Mersey Canal who is impersonating Trust staff as a volunteer lock keeper. The young male is wearing a hi-viz vest and offering to aid boats through the locks as well as piloting and may be seeking payment for his services.

We would like to make everyone aware that this individual is not acting on behalf of the Trust and because of his recent behaviour the Trust have informed Staffordshire Police. We are also aware that several boaters have contacted the Police directly to report the situation. The Trust will continue to monitor the location with the local police.

Enquiries: 0303 040 4040 during normal office hours
