The Outward Bound Trust has been voted the happiest workplace in Britain in the Laughology Awards.

The charity, which gives young people adventures in the outdoors, has centres in Ullswater and Eskdale, and one of its instructors has been crowned the second happiest person in Britain:

I think that while our work can be quite serious because we're looking after the safety of young people, it's also a vocational experience, so I think we should find it fun and there should always be time for laughter within the daytime as well as the serious work that we do.

– Martin Cooper, 'Second Happiest Person in Britain'
