Today is the last day on which the public can have their say on proposals to extend the boundaries of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales national parks.

Friends of the Lake District (FLD) has urged people who like to go walking or undertake other activities in the area to log on to the Natural England site and submit their own comments on plans to add extra land to the east and south of the national park.

The areas in question are around Levens and Sizergh fell to the south-east of Kendal and between the Birkbeck Fells and Whinfell between the A6 and M6 to the east of the current boundary.

Yorkshire Dales expansion plans include adding land to the east and north of Kirkby Lonsdale, the Orton Fells, Firbank Fell near Sedbergh, the Northern Howgill Fells, Mallerstang and Wild Boar Fell.

Those who love to head to these areas with their hiking boots may note these extensions cover a number of upland areas.

Wild Boar Fell is the highest mountain that would be added, at 2,323 ft.
