Questions are being asked about the purpose of a locked wooden gate with signs warning people of a risk of drowning and falling.
Yet you can walk two metres and get around the structure on the banks of the River Mersey in Northenden, Manchester.
Some argue the gate is there to stop cars driving down to the river. Yet locals say cars can’t get there anyway.
There is another permanently locked gate nearby, which only Manchester City Council and river authority vehicles have access to.
There's a video here.
