Cumbria 24 Mar 2013: the big freeze day three

The variability of the weather in Cumbria remains astonishing. In some areas, such as Whitehaven, there is bright sunshine, and the only sign of severe weather is that it is rather colder than the typical spring morning.

Other areas are still suffering severe disruption with huge snowdrifts still blocking key roads, including the A595 near Drigg and the A66 at Brough.

As at just before noon on Sunday there are still half a dozen major road closures in Cumbria

The BBC Travel News Cumbria page with up to date details of these and other problems is here.
