This is a really sad and tragic story
Boater is found dead in the canal
In the printed edition of the Derby Evening telegraph they report the boat was subsequently ransacked by thieves - this is missing from the web version. The paper copy also reads the boat had been in Willington since September - I really don't like newspapers.
Its a timely reminder to those living their life on the cut to take extra care - especially those single handers.
I want to meet you not read about you posthumously .
Take extra care
