Llandudno's Great Orme cable cars set to return to the sky after Storm Arwen damage.

Britain's longest passenger cable car system is set to make a return after being hit by Storm Arwen. Llandudno's Great Orme cable cars were forced to close after gale force winds destroyed the roof of both stations last year.

It came as the town's nearby Happy Valley was amongst the worst hit areas in North Wales with more than 60 trees blown down. But the cable cars, which normally operate from the beginning of the Easter holidays to the end of the October half-term are set to re-open this weekend.

The cars lift day trippers to the top of the 651ft high limestone landmark. The distance to the summit is just over a mile and the leisurely journey takes about nine minutes on an endless steel rope.
