A giant transporter has snaked the country roads to a remote Lake District village carrying a custom built underwater cable weighing 19 tonnes. It will be used to help restore mains electricity to the isolated community which has been without mains power since last December.
For the last 10 months 11 properties in the village have been relying on power from generators after a fault occurred on a power cable that runs through Wastwater - England's deepest lake.
Now 1.6km of replacement cable will be laid through the lake in a contour around 30 metres under the surface.
Jane Fleetwood, response manager for Electricity North West, said
The view from Waswater towards Wasdale Head was voted Britian's favourite view
