Walkers may not need Ordnance Survey Maps under new plans to have contour lines marked on the hills, unveiled in the Monster Raving Loony Party election manifesto.

The proposal is said to be a great aid to navigation by the party, which is advocating walking as a means of solving other major issues such as the European Constitution, noting: "Everyone knows that walking is good for the constitution."

However, the use of walking boots may be unneccesary on the pavement as these will be heated to allow people to walk barefoot, the party has said.

Those who like to get their fishing tackle out have also been considered, with a plan to combine the British love of fishing with that of queueing by locating bus stops near lakes and canals.

However, anyone fishing in Loch Ness should be aware that Nessie is to be made a protected species.

Meanwhile, the Ramblers have been busy with their own - rather more serious - election manifesto, which commits MPs to seek to encourage more walking.

Last week, the organisation revealed that one in five candidates had already signed up to the document.
