A holiday company in Wiltshire will be a little more cautious about renting out one of their narrowboats to stag parties after this weekend - reported the DailyMail.

A vessel hired by a group of men from Wales capsized on Saturday as the party tried to navigate the Kennet and Avon Canal near Widcombe.

The water in the lock drained away but the boat was stuck on the sill and it rolled over.
Luckily all of the men on board managed to escape uninjured.

The group had rented the boat from Alvechurch Waterway Holidays at Hilperton Marina in Trowbridge, Wiltshire.

The Canal and River Trust posted a photograph on Twitter show the boat at a 30 degree angle with one end submerged under water.
The Trust said the narrowboat would be lifted out of the canal by crane tomorrow at the earliest.
