I saw a sunken boat in there by the Zoo about six weeks ago - it was nearly blocking the canal, and one of the Little Venice-Camden restaurant barges had to graze the bank to squeeze through. During this manoeuvre I asked the woman guiding the boat how long it had been there - "About three or four weeks". She went on to say that since some obscure change to the status of (that is, no more state funding for) British Waterways, it was technically no-one's responsibility to remove it. If this is the same boat and it's a recent photo, it looks like the situation hasn't changed. Not good...
