Zip wire plans submitted

Further plans have been submitted for a massive zip wire in the Lake District.

The original idea for a permanent mile long zip wire at the Honister Slate Mine was rejected last year by local officials.

Now another plan has been put forward for a slightly shorter zipwire that would be in place for 18 months. During that time a visitor study would be carried out to see what impact it would have on the local area.
