Areas along Cumbria's coast could have greater protection under new plans for the conservation of marine habitats.
The Irish Sea Conversation Zones project is currently recommending areas to the UK government that could be designated for marine conservation.
BBC News reports that stretches of the Cumbrian coast around Allonby Bay and Whitehaven and Workington have been suggested for inclusion in the project, due to the abundance of wildlife they support.
