Fell-top walk up Helvellyn goes under the hammer

The chance to walk up Helvellyn with the Lake District National Park's Fell Top Assessors is being auctioned on the internet site eBay.

The nine walks that were available to buy have now been sold while the chance to write your report on the Weatherline website is up for the highest bidder.

It costs around £11,000 to run the site each year and the National Park thinks it should be funding, rather than relying on public money.

It is hoped the sales will fund the website for most of the year.
