A famous run of canal locks in Wiltshire has reopened after urgent repairs were carried out.

The Caen Hill flight of locks on the Kennet and Avon Canal in Devizes was closed on Monday.

British Waterways said one of the gate anchors at lock 29 had failed due to damage caused either by being hit by a boat, or through wear and tear.

British Waterways apologised to canal users for any inconvenience the closure caused.
