Two measurements are presented of estimators sensitive to the Colour Reconnection effect in W+W– events at LEP2. The results are compared with various phenomenological Monte Carlo implementations of the effect. A feasibility study is performed to reduce the total uncertainty in the direct mW measurement at LEP2 by use of the inferred information about the Colour Reconnection effect.
