Child drowns in Northampton arm, father calls for fencing.

The father of a two-year-old boy who died after being found in the Northampton Arm has said more needs to be done to prevent other deaths.

The child was recovered from the Grand Union Canal on Saturday night close to the last lock before entering the River Nene. There are new residential areas adjacent to the canal at this point which boaters generally avoid for mooring due to security concerns.

The father said a fence should be erected along the canal "to prevent this happening again, to anyone, not just a child".
