The road off the A590 near Urswick closed at around 3pm.

A spokesman for the authority confirmed the road has been closed while contractors clean the road with detergent after a large amount of hydraulic oil leaked onto the road.

Work is under way and the council hopes to reopen the route later today but a spokesman said it will only reopen if the road is deemed safe.
