pounds 100k BILL FOR KATE.

SINGER Kate Bush could face a pounds 100,000 bill after a weir collapsed, sending a torrent of water into a canal and sinking a narrowboat.

Kate, 48, who had hits with Wuthering Heights and Running Up That Hill, lives on a pounds 1.5million private island on the Kennet and Avon in Berks.

The 200-year-old weir, which links the canal and River Thames and used to supply a mill on her island, collapsed after heavy rain, sending millions of gallons surging into the canal. It has left the channel unnavigable.

Mike Wyatt, of the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust, said: "She has called in an engineer to inspect the damage."
