An open day at the under-repair Holme Lock off the River Trent has been cancelled as hole has been discovered in the lock floor.
The event was due to be held on Sunday, but with water leaking through the hole organisers have ruled it is no longer safe to let members of the public inside.
The open day is due to be rescheduled when a solution is found.
At 25 feet deep and 175 feet long the Holme Lock in Nottinghamshire is one of the biggest and deepest canal locks in the country.
But at the moment it is being drained of water while repair work is carried out. The Canal and River Trust say it is a vital part of maintaining the heritage of our waterways.
Work to repair the Holme Lock in Nottingham has got underway - one of the biggest jobs the Canal and River Trust will undertake this year.Read the full story ›
A Sneinton beat manager and a Meadows response officer braved the waters of the River Trent to rescue an elderly woman.
When the Force control room received a call of a body floating in the water at Colwick Marina, City response teams were dispatched.
On 2 July the captain of a cruiser at the marina had reported seeing the body and thought the woman was dead.
A life ring was thrown out to her but when she didn't respond officers feared the worst.
PC Mat Mitchell had already waded into the water to try and recover the body when a boat went past.
I shouted to the bloke in the boat and he pulled me on board to get nearer to the body. Her head was slightly submerged and she really did look dead. Then, in one of the most bizarre experiences of my career, she opened her eyes.
She had the most piercing blue eyes – it was so bizarre. I stripped off and jumped in the water, she was about 20 metres away, and swam her back to the bank.
As he got nearer PC Katie Eustace, from the Meadows, waded in to help bring the body to shore.
The woman in her 70s was conscious and breathing and taken to Queen's Medical Centre.
She had been floating in the river for about an hour but was surprisingly well despite the ordeal.
It's certainly not everyday you go wading into the water. I'd like to say it was like a scene from Baywatch but it was actually very cold and I'm not quite as chiselled as David Hasselhoff.
We were preparing for the worst so it was so nice that this had a happy ending.
