Waterway Watch in the real sense

There have been a number of reports of a distinctly painted narrowboat with white cruiser in tow helping themselves to diesel and various boating item from unattended boats. When I say that the boat is painted in full army-style camouflage, I’m surprised that they haven’t been apprehended by now.

I spotted them yesterday evening going down Alrewas Lock at about 6pm. Unfortunately, my phone battery was flat so I couldn’t call the police until I got home.

If you see these boats, call 101 and quote Incident 684/May 1st.

You might also call CRT’s number’s as I understand they are aware of various transgressions. CRT (8am-8pm) 0303 040 40 40 or out of hours emergency 0800 47 999 47. Note too that Staffordshire have a canal watch Facebook page and this is a good time to use it to keep track of the boats(s) movements.

Lets get these (alleged) pests off the waterways!
