Volunteers needed for canal's Big Spring Clean

Waterways charity the Canal & River Trust, is calling on local people, businesses and residents to help give Rochdale Canal in Manchester city centre a spring clean.

The canal is close to Manchester's bars and restaurants and the Canal & River Trust has an ongoing battle with litter, plastics and glass bottles thrown into the canal.

The charity estimates that it spends £1million every year removing litter which can harm wildlife and damage the environment from across its 2,000-mile network.
