Navigation re-opened.

From EA

The emergency river closure at Teddington Lock that we were forced to implement on Wednesday 26 February due to sunken boats making it impossible for other vessels to transit the lock, has now been lifted.
The sunken boat obstructing operation of the launch lock has now been removed and the lock is once more operational.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this incident and thank you for your patience while we worked to resolve it.
We are working to ensure the sunken boat in the barge lock chamber is removed at the earliest opportunity.

You don't need a barge to join - a dream of boating in Europe will do'. See www.barges.org

EA report just received via Twitter of river closure at Teddington due to serious incident:

“Three boats were set on fire and had their moorings cut upstream of #Teddingtonlock. Two of them drifted into the barge lock and main lock and sunk. The navigation is closed until recovery can be secured, which given current flows, may be delayed.”
