Snow stops helicopter lift

Thursday 24 February 2005

Snow

HEAVY snow on the uplands of the Yorkshire Dales has forced national park officials to abandon a dramatic helicopter airlift of foundation material for the new Pennine Bridleway Trail (see News, February 22).

The helicopter should have started work yesterday to carry more than 3,000 tonnes of stone onto the moors around Malham which are in accessible to wheeled traffic.

And with heavier snow - and even blizzards - forecast for later today, it is unlikely that the airlift will go ahead this week.
