Following the launch of last week's national campaign by the Ramblers Association to seek commitments for reopening footpaths it has been claimed that the majority of Welsh unitary councils lack the resources to meet the demand, The Western Mail reports (p5).

Ceredigion DC, which has already more than 2,500 miles of footpaths and bridleways in use, says it desperately needs financial help if is is to reopen disused routes.

To highlight the problem, the council estimates the cost of re-opening a single path at Llanbadarn near Aberystwyth could be as high as £40,000.

The council has applied for lottery money to help maintain the footpath network, The Mail reports.
