Cumbria footpaths could become unusable due to budget cuts

Ramblers in Cumbria are concerned thousands of public footpaths in the county could become unusable due to budget cuts.

Ian Brodie, a keen walker in the Lake District, says the problems include paths being overrun with growing vegetation and neglected stiles and bridges.

Cumbria County Council said it had to save £64m since last year and all services have been affected.
