WARRINGTON Anglers' Association are urging their members to object against a road closure that would impact on access to fishing rights.

The club's secretary, Frank Lythgoe, says in his weekly Warrington Guardian column: "It is vitally important to all members that they object to a residential development at Daresbury.

"Outline planning application number 20/00337/OUTEIA has been submitted to Halton Council for residential development at Daresbury.

"This includes a proposed closure of Red Brow Lane, Daresbury, which has been used by our members for access by motor vehicle to fish the Bridgewater Canal at Red Brow Underbridge for countless years. I have used it for almost 60."

He added: "Members can object or comment online to the closure by emailing dev.control@halton.gov.uk, then click on planning applications.

"At case number, enter the planning application number in full, then click on search, next click comment now and fill in the form, click I am not a robot, and send. Please save the confirmation.

"Protect your fishing, many thanks everyone."
