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.

The volunteers plan to start a second route on Mondays and Thursdays in September. It will include Lannercost, Walton, Hethersgill, Smithfield and Scaleby.
