Councillors blaze a trail in canoes

TOWN councillors found themselves in at the deep end when they took to the waters to celebrate the opening of the River Mersey Canoe Trail in Stockport.
The launch held on Monday near Brinksway Weir, marks the first voluntary dedication of public access to a water way by landowners.
The new right of access to River Mersey was a joint venture between Natural England and the Environment Agency, supported by Stockport Council.
