Fencing around Manchester City Canals

Following the death of 19 year old Charlie Pope, I believe it is time for change.
There has been a significant amount of bodies found in the Manchester waterways and it's time for this to stop. Why this has not happen yet is beyond me... We need lightning, fencing and CCTV to ensure this will not happen again.
Preventative measures need to be put into place. I am aware there is some fencing but more needs to be done to ensure another life is not lost. Although i'm sure this will be costly for our council/government, I do not think another life deserves to be lost due to Manchester canals.
There are significantly less deaths in cities such as Birmingham as their canals are well fenced. This is proof that measures can be put into place to prevent deaths from happening.
RIP Charlie Pope...
The Manchester community are fighting for you.
