Long narrowboat gets stuck - resembling the events to the Suez Canal crisis

Videos showing a 45-foot long narrowboat stuck between the banks of a narrow English canal have taken internet by storm and prompted comical comparisons to the Suez Canal crisis. Gordon Chesterman, 62, was left scratching his head and considering abandoning his 20-tonne narrowboat, named Ouse Who, after it got firmly wedged in the waterway near Ely, Cambs. Gordon, a Cambridge University tutor, had been enjoying a day out on the boat with some family friends when one of them attempted to turn the boat 180 degrees - but misjudged the width of the canal. *This video was filmed December 2012.
