Old story but have been thinking about this recently. Even at my most wasted can't imagine falling into a canal yet 60 people have done in Manchester but none of the deaths are suspicious….

The weirdest thing is the canals tend to be very shallow - you could stand on the bottom and have your head easily above the water except at locks

The council are to close a large stretch of canal next to Piccadilly Station to the public, as its deemed one of the unsafest places in Manchester City centre. I took a shortcut one morning last summer and discovered a seriously suspicious gang of men that would put the shit up anyone. How the council have not invested in any kind of CCTV down there for all these years.

Walk on them canals is last resort. Number of unlit under passes and the like is mad. Only bit I ever walk down is deansdate castlefield end. So many dodgy people down there usually.

@kid, nah, not a pusher per say but I think it's just a combination of the type of drink and drugs culture of canal Street,the increase in general goings on under canal bridges, brought about by an increase in drug use and general demand in Manchester amongst some homeless and addicts. Some may well have been pushed but I think the high figures are due to proximity.

The whole Piccadilly Station area has always been seedy. I just think that all the new bars and hotels mask the saunas and cruising culture, prostitution, public sex, homelessness, drug dealing etc and lure people into a false sense of security.
