At The Slipway pub on Crabtree Lane Burscough on the evening of Saturday the 25th June 2016 as a Land Rover is recovered from the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. On the evening of 25.6.16 a Land Rover driver decided to try some high jinks fun at the Slipway pub near Burscough in West Lancashire by driving the vehicle down the concrete slipway into the Leeds and Liverpool canal. Unfortunately the driver didn't realize that the concrete slipway ended not far below water level and the canal bed was a good bit lower than the concrete. The Land Rover slipped in too far and he couldn't drive it out again, and it didn't float. He was eventually rescued by being pulled out by a Range Rover, but it provided a bit of excitement for local people on a Saturday evening visit to the pub.
