A failing weir on the River Calder near Halifax has been reported as having "lots of metal spikes of sticking out which would be pretty lethal, and debris piled up",,,,

The degree of hazard may not be immediately apparent if approaching from upstream. Halifax Canoe Club advise all canoeists and kayakers to approach with caution and egress on to the right bank above the weir to inspect and portage.
