BW closing down freight

British Waterways have closed down their freight arm because it was slightly loss making with costs of £1M against £0.7M back in revenue. When you consider they also made close to £70M profit on property, is this £0.3M really crucial? At a time when concerns over global warming are high, you’d think the government would want them to champion this alternative freight transport option.

This story appeared in the Telegraph, and I just recently saw it at the dentists – hurrah for week old papers in reception!
