  3. Statue of Max the dog to be unveiled

    A statue of a special dog will be unveiled in Keswick later.

    Max the spaniel has been something of an ambassador for the Lake District town, and has a huge social media following, which has inspired tens of thousands of people watching his daily walks during the pandemic.

    His owner Kerry Irving credits Max with saving his life, getting him back outside and giving him confidence when he was suffering depression after a car accident.

    Kerry said he was delighted when he was approached about the "fantastic honour".

    A fundraising campaign for the bronze statue raised its £15,000 target within two hours.

    It'll be positioned in Hope Park on a new bench made of Lakeland slate from the Honister mine.

    Mayor of Keswick Alan Dunn said: "Max is a superstar and a big attraction for Keswick and it will be a collection box for Keswick's parks so we're hoping it's successful."
