In pictures: the mucky pups of Canalival

This time last week we were distinctly pumped up for Canalival, a waterborne party on Regent’s Canal set for the weekend. Alas, organisers pulled the plug when they felt they couldn’t ensure the safety of the event, which meant no police support and no insurance.

Despite that, plenty of people turned up anyway, had a great time, but then left a by-all-accounts pretty severe mess. YOU ARE ALL VERY NAUGHTY. But here are some photos.

The original organisers crowdsourced a clean-up on Sunday, which seems to have gone some way to tidying the mess. Canalival’s Facebook wall is still a lively place of discussion between angry residents, supportive residents, devil-may-care attendees and contrite cleaner-uppers.
