Technology is being used to help lion hunters in Northampton in tracking down members of the Pride of Northampton.
A new iPhone app for the Pride of Northampton is now available to help anyone planning a safari in Northampton this summer. The new app is free to download on iTunes and can be found by searching for "Pride of Northampton".
The app includes a map, pictures of every member of the Pride, information about the event and a Lion Safari feature. The Lion Safari allows iPhone users to track down their nearest lion as they point their phone north, south, east and west.
Councillor Paul Varnsverry, Northampton Borough Council cabinet said: "This is a great way to explore Northampton. The Pride is capturing the imagination of huge numbers of people who either live in or are visiting the town. Everywhere you look there are people stroking, hugging and photographing the Pride. If you haven’t come into Northampton to see our lions yet then why not download the app and come and see what everyone is talking about?"
