Boat for wheelchair users launched on lake in Cornwall

The vessel is aimed at anglers but can also be used for trips

A special boat which gives disabled people access to the water has been launched on a lake in Cornwall.

The new Wheelyboat, on Stithians Lake, near Redruth, has cost £16,000 and has a ramp allowing access for wheelchair users so they can go sailing.

The outboard motor-powered vessel is mainly aimed at anglers but can also be used for trips.

It is the third in the county. The other two sail on Siblyback Lake and on the River Fowey.

The Environment Agency has also been involved in the project.
