Sunk boat floated at Allerton Bywater

Underwater engineers have been refloating a boat which sunk in the River Aire at Allerton Bywater.

The boat is understood to have sunk about three weeks ago, near the Boat Inn on Main Street.

Sub-sea engineering firm CDMS, based in York, was on the scene on Thursday trying to pump out and refloat the boat, before taking it to Methley to dry-dock it.
