    Well I jumped off one pi$$ed in the River Avon at Bristol about 30 years ago.

    Big risk of viells disease apparently.

    Or so said the policeman who met me at the quayside anyway:D

    Back in 2005, there was a young guy in his thirties called Scraggy who lived on an old working boat on Trent & Mersey Canal at Fradley Junction. He started with flu like symptoms and died within three weeks of Weils Disease which is spread via rats urine. :eek:
