Not sure about that, but it does show incomprehensibility. What is the Manchester pusher? And what's it good to do with Brewood, which is some distance from Manchester?

If you are serious then perhaps you are a bit more than a single step beyond!

Of course I am serious -and thank you.

Fair enough - the Manchester pusher is someone who allegedly is responsible for several persons involuntarily entering the canals around Manchester over a period of years.

 

This has been the subject of several threads on this site.

Thank you.

Surely that should be "is allegedly someone" rather than the other way round.

Yes, thank you, you are indeed correct.

 

However I am already in trouble (with Athy) about this issue so I had better await a resolution of that matter before saying any more.

I note that Cuthound states that these incidents are NOT suspicious; so, on what does Jim base his assertion that they are? Local news reports?

No.

To say that a death was appalling shows shock and sympathy.which are what I feel. How on earth could you think otherwise?

I'm not debating the appropriateness or lack thereof with you as I've learnt the pointlessness of that, but I do hope that none of the gentleman's family see this thread.

Quite so - it is appropriate to express such feelings in these circumstances. But the man's family will already have heard this grim news.

I have just read the newspaper report which is linked to the opening post, and it does state clearly that foul play is NOT suspected. One member obviously thought it was, and I agree that his post could cause further distress. so it has been removed.

I have said what I am entitled to say and I don't feel the need to expand on what I have said. 

 

Now to try and make this thread a little more constructive.

 

Staffordshire Police are appealing for witnesses.

Detectives are appealing for witnesses after the body of a man was found in the canal in Brewood this morning (Thursday 16 January).

 

Officers were called at 7.25am by a member of the public to reports of a body in the canal near to the Bridge Inn pub at Kiddemore Green.

A cordon is in place. The death is not being treated as suspicious.

Detective Inspector Neil Poultney, of CID, said: “We’re very keen to speak to people who may have been in the area and have seen something to get in touch.

“This is busy spot for boaters and walkers.

Anyone with any information should message Staffordshire Police on Facebook or Twitter quoting incident number 80 of 16 January, call 101 or alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

After a moddies' conference, this thread has been pruned with the purpose of removing any references to foul play, as that appears to be a completely false rumour. Would any future posters please exercise courtesy and compassion?

  I don't know if it is a poor use of English but the ambulance personnel twice refer to a patient, this could mean some unfortunate soul had decamped from a nearby medical facility, as normally a reference would be to a casualty - they only become a patient when treatment has started?

Condolences to relatives and friends.

Troy, I think that "courtesy and compassion" includes not speculating about this incident. As a respected forum member pointed out earlier in the thread, his relatives may possibly read this thread. Hence I have modified your post.

You were welcome to modify mine as it doesn't make sense anymore!

 

Now sorted, i thought i'd run out of time.
