Plans for a huge zipwire at Honister in the Lake District were rejected yesterday (9th January).
Proposals for the half mile long zipwire at Honister Slate Mine were thrown out by the Lake District National Park Authority.
The decision led Sir Chris Bonington to quit his role as Vice-President of the organisation of Friends of the Lake District.
ITV Border viewers have been giving their reactions to the decision on Twitter:
"Appalled at decision & even more at @FriendsofLakes telling @ChrisBonington to 'go away & calm down' on @ITVBorder"
"Good job the LDNPA wasn't around when the mine was opened or Cumbria would never have had any jobs!"
Who on earth would want to wreck the fells with a great zip wire anyway? Correct decision!"
