Plans for Innerleithen bike lift approved

Campaigners behind plans to build a mountain bike chairlift say being granted planning permission is a 'huge milestone. '

Scottish Borders Council approved the project, which is set to be built close to Innerleithen.

It's claimed it will create over 100 jobs. But now the hard work begins, because it's up to a community group to raise the £5.5m pounds for the project.
