  2. Attenborough letter delights Carlisle campaign group

    A personal reply from Sir David Attenborough has heartened a group of environmental campaigners in Carlisle.

    The "Save Deer Park Field" group is opposing plans to build up to 80 homes on an area of land near the Kingmoor Sidings Nature Reserve.

    The group says the area is popular with nature enthusiasts, but Carlisle City Council planning officers have recommended approval at a meeting tomorrow.

    Pat Duncan from the campaign said Sir David said he understood their concern but as he knew nothing about the site itself, they should contact the Cumbria Wildlife Trust.
