Today, he received a six month suspended sentence

He got a six`month suspended sentence, which means he can

He has to go to the police station tomorrow to pick his passport up,

:00:34.:00:38.

so we're hoping that he'll be home before the end of the week.

Canal restorers are hoping to secure a ?3 million lottery grant

The Grantham Canal was once a key transport link,

:00:50.:00:57.

Volunteers think they can return it to its former glory

:00:58.:01:01.

200 miles of British canals brought back to life in the last 14 years.

:01:02.:01:09.

Now Grantham's Canal is bidding to join them.

The restoration of the Woolsthorpe Top Lock.

:01:27.:01:29.

This is a completely refurbished block. We want to move down to the

:01:37.:01:39.

Their day may have gone, but Lincolnshire make the most

economies. If it was developed more, we would have more trade. Pubs are

help fix a few significant lock gates, then boat owners might also

find it appealing. If we can get beyond these four

:02:41.:02:59.

blocks, that is our initiative. The importance of getting them restored

is just so important. Of course, restoring the canal
