Copeland MP Trudy Harrison met with a delegation of Indian travel company representatives in a bid to help boost tourism in the area.

Held at Muncaster Castle on Bank Holiday Monday, the delegation was part of a Visit Britain project to help attract more visitors to the borough.

“The landscape, coastline, heritage and visitor experiences that we have in abundance in Copeland is spectacular but under-discovered,” said the MP.

“Tourism is an under-developed economy compared to the central Lake District, a small increase would create jobs and support facilities and services that we would all enjoy.”

The event took place during Muncaster Castle’s successful Food and Drink Festival.

Mrs Harrison added: “Overseas visitors love our cultural heritage and wildlife, we can all get involved by also providing a very warm welcome and tidy towns and villages.

“The sun shone, Peter Frost-Pennington intrigued with his tales of history and humour and the owls, vultures and falcons dominated the sky with an incredible display, before everyone headed over to the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway.”
