Electricity poles removed to improve landscape

Engineers are clearing old electricity poles from a beauty spot in the Lake District, as part of a long-term scheme to improve the landscape.

Electricity North West is instead burying power cables at Stair in the Keswick Valley - something it says will please local people and tourists.

Mark McAlindon has been to the area and spoke to Martin Deehan from the electricity company.
