The charity which protects the River Eden in Cumbria has been given a two million pounds grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The money will be spent on projects aimed at encouraging people to make the most of the river.

Part of the money will be spent on community groups who will survey the river's wildlife, control invasive plants and try to prevent pollution.

The lottery grant will also fund a new apprentice scheme at Newton Rigg College.
