Cumbria's forests inspected

An independent group set up by the government to look into the future of Britain's forests will meet with forestry managers in Cumbria today.

It comes as concerns have been raised by Friends of the Lake District about the future of the trails and wildlife that live in Cumbria's woodland.

They believe a lack of funding into the forests is now the biggest threat to them.

The panel will combine their findings with those from other areas of the UK and present their results in a report to Westminster in June.
