UPDATE: Cumbria police urge communities to prepare for flooding

Officers say residents in Cumbria should expect further road disruptions with a risk of flooding from tomorrow.

Cumbria Police, along with partner agencies, has urged communities to be prepared as the weather over the coming days may continue to cause disruption to roads and potentially cause some localised flooding.

Over the last week the county’s roads have been affected by fallen trees and standing water, the extent on some roads has resulted in them being closed due to the risk to motorists.

A yellow warning has been given for Cumbria on New Year’s Day by the met office

The Met office have advised that more heavy rain is due to hit Cumbria again on Wednesday followed by high winds on Friday combined with a very high tide, therefore Police want to take this opportunity advise people to take care and be prepared.

Heay rain of about 20mm as well as flooding is expected across the county.

The warning is in place from 9am tomorrow until midnight.
