Cumbrian farm that could become part of a national park

A public inquiry has begun into proposals to extend the boundaries of the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Parks.

Natural England has agreed plans to extend both areas to encompass an additional 162 sq miles (420 sq km).

The proposed expansion would see areas including Mallerstang and Barbon brought into the Yorkshire Dales and Borrowdale added to the Lake District.

Jenny Hill reports from a Cumbrian farm which could become part of a national park under the proposals.
