Waiting for a breakthrough…


Great, more junk in the canal... near Catshill Junction. 1:48pm, Friday, December 31st 2010.

One of the worst effects of a cold snap on the local environment is junk that gets thrown onto canal ice in an attempt to break it inevitably ends up in the water. This was the second feral trolley observed in the short stretch between Silver Street and Catshill Junction. When the ice melts, an assortment of wood, tree branches, old tyres and detritus will be polluting an otherwise generally clear waterway.

    I live alongside the canal in Walsall town centre, it’s the same here, no idea what the fascination is with throwing junk onto the ice, additions over the last couple of days include a bin bag, bunch of clothes and battered umbrella.

    This is absolutely disgusting. What the hell motivates people to do this? What’s wrong with a good old fashioned pebble?

    l totally agree, it’s disgusting.What pleasure do the morons get out of doing it?
    A cupboard/welsh dresser in pieces and a childs playhouse are amongst the rubbish littering the canal under the Blackcock Bridge.It looks terrible. Goodness knows what injuries await the summer morons who choose to jump frorm the roof of the walkway into the canal.

    What a sad picture and reflection on society. Some people have no pride in their surroundings.
