WE'RE putting together a guide to wireless hotspots in North Lancashire, South Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales.

Increasing numbers of us have laptops, netbooks and smartphones nowadays and want to find free public wifi venues to connect to the internet for work or play.

We've compiled a list of some places which offer the service - but we need your help. Let us know which cafes, pubs, bars, restaurants, service stations and shops letting you go online.

So if you know somewhere near you with free wireless access, please leave a comment below and we'll add the details.
