A fungal disease that has devastated ash tree populations in Europe has arrived in Cumbria.
Ash Dieback is estimated to have killed between 60 and 90 percent of Denmark's ash trees.
It blocks water pores in the trees' leaves, causing them to wither, and diamond shaped lesions to form on the bark.
So far, the disease has been spotted at ten sites in the Lake District.
