FIVE farming lovelies from South Lakeland have stripped down to their wellies and put the phwoar into farming.

And the women - members of Cartmel Young Farmers Club - have issued their apologies to a blushing postie who chanced on their outdoor photoshoot.

Organiser Rebecca Knipe of Allithwaite, explained how the group peeled off on farmland in the Rusland Valley - distracting a passing postman, cyclists and ramblers.
