appologies for breif answer - but you are " over simplifying it "


yes - all major cities have a tally of " misadventure deaths "

but manchester - bodies in canals IS an anomoly

its confined to a certain area - not the entire metropolis

further - the cities of liverpool and birmingham , glasgow - also have lots of canals // water ways - and a far lower "bodies in canals // 100 thousand citizens " count than manchester

does that make sense ?


i agree ive lived in two canal towns and not seen this amount of deaths, yes some could be written off as suicide or misadventure but not all

Canals are notoriously difficult to climb out of, especially when pished. Vertical slimy walls and unless you know where the exits are then no doubt you would quickly tire treading water. Not saying there's not some foul play.

Throw someone in a river and there's a good chance they find an exit or at least something to hold onto. Canals are a different animal.


this could also be switched over to the serial killer argument. think about it, you want to kill as many people as possible without leaving marks, clues or suspiction.
you push some lone guy in possibly drunk who perhaps isnt in the state to fight back, or creep up on someone unsuspecting and push them in. they arent expecting it the trip/fall/slip/loose balance and fall in, you walk away like nothing happened, the person cant get out and drowns or cucumbs to the elements, think about a serial killer they do this for power, what can be more powerful than causing someones death and theres nothing they can do to save themselves
people get suspicious at the deaths in your usual hunting ground you move to other cities for a while.
Birmingham, hudderfield, leeds, york, bristol all easy to get to on train or car.
maybe theres more than one of you a group of sick individuals who take pleasure in watching these people fight for life with no way of escaping.

maybe im thinking to much into this i dont know

yeah i dont miss the hills at all, i live int he fens now so no hills no canals haha.
but it would be interesting to see where the deaths are in huddsfield, especially if they are near the clubs or student areas

Highly weird and somewhat humorous in a strange sort of way, when, as I gather from the Newspaper article you linked up, its not a problem unless the cops say its a problem and they aren't saying its a problem because its not a problem they can solve.

Man, UK got some really bad policing problems. If its too be believed, from some UK shows I've been watching of late, UK police are so caught up in political correctness they damned near have to have a protocols meeting to make a list of all the protocols they'll have to discuss in future meetings before any action can be taken in terms of actually "detecting" who's causing the problem in the first place. Its a wonder any suspect ever gets caught and when they do, they don't get prosecuted unless they specifically, repeatedly and in writing, confess to committing the crime.

Why report it when all our news channels and newspapers only care about celebrity scandals, footballers shagging prostitues behind their wife's backs, the bloody royal family and Meghan sodding Markle or some pointless political pushing agenda.

The deaths are strange, some could be put down to drunks especially in the summer if its a hot day they might fancy a dip in a canal (I'll pass on that myself, especially in Manchester) dive in and knock themselves out when they hit the bottom. Or maybe it is a serial killer and the news doesn't get out to stop th fear of panic.

But going back to why it doesn't make the news, just spend a week watching the news or reading the newspapers and you'll soon get why nothing is reported. The news and newspapers in the UK are an absolute farce, I'd wipe my backside with sand paper before I considered using newspapers that's how much I rate them.

Sorry just realised I've gone off on a massive rant .. aaanyway you catch my drift

your not wrong the police in the uk are shocking.
the hillsbough disaster they blamed on the football fans when its been discovered of late its been covered up, they covered up the jimmy savile pedo ring, and recently theres the rotherham pedo rings they covered up as they didnt want to offend the communities involved, now its been discovered the rotherham ring extends to numerous towns int he uk.
honestly all the cops in the uk are bothered about are motorists.
its the same with this canal situation, its like they cant find an answer straight away so blame the young men for being drunk and just forget about it. at a minimum they should be looking to see if the canal area is dangerous to walk on ieg slippy no railing but naaaa its to much work.

I have another theory about the canal drownings I'll share with you on the grounds you please not take it as an insult whatsoever; I've got some very dear friends in and from the UK.

My theory is..........suicide! I base that on watching a Brit TV show, "Scott & Bailey" apparently set in Manchester. I've come to the opinion that for a variety of reasons, but the weather principally, and the crap economy that the area is rampant with untreated, severe depression! I mean, honestly, human beings can only be deprived of sunlight and endure rain for only a certain amount of time before they lose their minds. Add to that chronic damp cold, mist, fog and booze and you've got a recipe for disaster!

The canals may not be the problem....................they may be the ANSWER, a way out of chronic depression!!

I doubt the weather is the issue, I think when you're born in the UK you have a natural resilience to the crap weather. A part of my current job is to load large trucks. When it's raining and we get the odd European driver turn up they often ask me if I mind loading in the rain. I just shrug and say .. I'm English I'm use to it

You could be correct, I don't know, but I'm amazed by one observation I've made! Shoes! I witness Brits daily slogging through the rain on soaked and puddled streets and sidewalks in leather "dress" shoes! What's the average Brits annual budget for shoes? I can't believe they ever leave the house without their "Wellies" on their feet. Its bizarre. One show we love to watch is "Frost"; Detective Frost ruins at minimum, at least one pair of shoes in the course of 90 minutes.

Is there really no learning curve, or is it that shoes are just incredibly cheap?

no insult taken, i do think sme might be accident/suicide but not all. i know the weathers rubish here believe me ive lived all over the uk and it can take a toll, i lived in the us last year also and as soon as i save up im back to vegas or anywhere sunny, but i dont think its the underlying factor, but an interesting idea

shoes are cheap but most jobs require dress shoes so people generally dont have a choice
honestly i dont go though many shoes a year, when you live in a damp counrty you learn to avoid the puddles and mud
