Bumpy ride for Timothy West at re-opening of lock

An historic canal lock, the Guillotine Lock on the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal near Kings Norton, has been restored after years of decay and vandalism. It's so important it has been listed as a "scheduled monument".

The renovated structure was unveiled by the actor and canal enthusiast Timothy West.

But the boat the actor was on, the West Midlands' historic working boat Scorpio, bumped into the lock, to the amusement of all the passengers on board.
