A multi-million pound project designed to return parts of Cumbria's countryside to how it used to be is underway.
Hundreds of years ago some of the county's rivers were straightened to make farming easier.
That work is now being reversed in the hope that it will make a better environment for local wildlife.

A multi-million pound project to return parts of the Cumbrian countryside to its natural state is underway.
Hundreds of years ago some of the county's rivers were straightened to expand surrounding land and make farming easier.
Now, a project is underway to reverse that work and improve the surrounding areas for local wildlife.
The work will see some of the original river beds excavated and the river re-routed along them.
Eden Rivers Trust, the Environment Agency and Natural England have been working closely with local landowners and tenant farmers on the project.
The project is set to be finished at the end of the summer.
Maggie Robinson from Natural England explains the benefits of the project:
A photographic exhibition is being held in Cumbria, the subject of which, is some of the world's most dangerous and endangered animals.
What's more, the contributors are some of the world's best wildlife photographers.
Amy Dunsmuir reports:
Experts from across the world are coming to Cumbria today to learn about the region's wetlands.
A special event is being held to showcase the ecotourism these areas create - and their effect on rural tourism.
