A rumour is going round that there is a serious breach of the Oxford Canal at Barby. Does anyone have details?

Probably Tony McMaster trying to put some new pontoons in.

So can you say more about the sources of this rumour?

Any serious breech in that pound would involve from Hillmorton to Braunston, Calcutt and Napton, so I would have though stop planks would be being deployed pretty sharpish if there were any truth in said rumours.

I came from a CRT bankside employee.

Well, if he is a reliable witness, he needs to tell someone else in CRT, so they can get it on their notices page...

Barby can be chaos in August without there being any breach!

Its a virtual breach until the vandals get there, simple.  It will be "monitored" until it empties the canal, Its happened before!!!!!!

Reporting a leak does not mean that CRT believe it or will do anything about it, besides where would they find someone to have a look?

I’ve got a reply from CRT on twitter who say they haven’t heard anything but will check....I’m guessing if it was serious then it would be more known about. My money is on a faulty sluice at best.
