Cumbria on Storm alert again as Harry approaches ...

A weather warning is in place for Cumbria as yet another storm - this one is called Storm Harry - approaches today, bringing treacherous conditions and high winds of up to 90mph

The Met Office has issued a yellow rain alert for much of the Northern UK including Cumbria which lasts throughout tomorrow.  This warning, also covering south west Scotland, comes as a flood warning is in place at Keswick Campsite.

A lower level flood alert has been issued for the upper river Derwent, Stonethwaite Beck and Derwentwater. In Carlisle, police this morning warned motorists of flooding at Mallyclose Drive, Harraby. Some train services in Scotland have already been suspended for this afternoon.
