Holmrook and Wath Brow
Although the Copeland Borough area has not been nearly as badly hit as Allerdale, there have been communities within the Borough which have had real issues.
The Wath Brow bridge at Cleator Moor has been closed as has the Irt bridge at Holmrook - a massive issue both for the village and for South Copeland as this bridge carries the A595 south from Sellafield.
A diversion is in place via Santon Bridge.
Firefighters were in Holmrook all night last Thursday, pumping water from the road and properties.
“We continued pumping all night,” said David Moore, watch manager of Seascale fire station. (Yes, that's the same David Moore who is often quoted on this blog wearing one of his other hats.)
“But at 4am, although the tide had gone out, the river was rising faster than we could pump water away from properties.”
People were told to stay in their homes and sand bags were given out.
Although a number of businesses were affected by the flood they are still open. The local MP visited on Tuesday and stressed that "Holmrook is open for business."
