A volunteer community bus service, running through small Cumbrian villages, has been so successful it is launching a new route.
The Border Rambler started last year, to replace the service that used to run along the A689.
It runs on Tuesdays and Fridays and picks up on average nine passengers per journey.
The volunteers plan to start a second route on Mondays and Thursdays in September. It will include Lannercost, Walton, Hethersgill, Smithfield and Scaleby.
People have used it continually. We haven't missed a day since we started, all the way through the floods so the feedback's good.
