Despite that I was able to walk on and have a skate on hard wet ice - but had to pick my spots because of the rubbish and weed weakened ice. (Weed may be a real problem in this area next year) Solid close in but creaky as you went further out so I didn't venture far outside Rush Cutters.
It really felt like the last of the ice for this year - and very warm.
