'Submarine' sets sail along Leeds-Liverpool canal


A man has turned his canal barge into a replica of a submarine to mark his 50th birthday.

Richard Williams said the work cost almost £60,000 and took about three months to complete.

The barge cannot be submerged but does sail along the Leeds-Liverpool canal, with Mr Williams often welcoming people on board.

He lives on his "submarine" with his wife, Laurel, and their three dogs.
