The UK's landmarks may lose their world heritage status if greater efforts aren't made to preserve them, UNESCO has cautioned.
The warning comes as the slate landscape of Gwynedd, Northwest Wales is named the UK's newest UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The UK Government nominated the landscape for UNESCO status in 2018. It will become the nation's 32nd site after Liverpool was stripped of its status earlier this month over construction on the waterfront.
Heritage Minister Caroline Dinenage said the "huge achievement" was testament to the area's importance during the industrial revolution.
"I welcome the prospect of increased investment, jobs and a better understanding of this stunning part of the UK."
