Falkirk Wheel reopens to the public after annual 'MoT'

The Falkirk Wheel will reopen to the public on Saturday after its annual 'MoT'.
Engineers have spent the last month carrying out inspections and essential maintenance on the rotating boat lift.
The wheel was also drained of water during the operation to allow for a full inspection of the structure.
Paul Berry, Scottish Canals' project manager, said: "The Falkirk Wheel is an incredible and unique feat of engineering as well as one of Scotland's top tourism attractions.
"It is essential we carry out regular maintenance to ensure the Wheel continues to operate safely."
The Wheel, which connects the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal, was opened in 2002 as part of the Millennium Link project.
More than six million people have visited it since.
