Waiting game almost over for Friends of Blencathra

After six weeks of campaigning and fundraising, the wait is almost over for the Friends of Blencathra to see if they have done enough to reclaim the mountain in the Lake District for the community.

It was put up for sale in May with a guide price of £1.75m.

Since then, supporters from all over the country plus some celebs have joined the charity to try to buy it as a community asset. Bidding closed at midday today (July 2).

Kim Inglis met three generations who have grown up visiting the mountain and want to make sure the next three generations have the chance to do the same.
