The Parton landship

There is a major issue in Parton, just north of Whitehaven where there has been a landslip.

There was a very well attended cross party session there this afternoon to hand out information for local residents from the police and both County and Borough councils about what is being done and how to get help. Civic leaders from both the main local parties and from constituency, county and Borough level took part.

I do not have the full list of participants but among those I saw while I was taking part myself were our local MP Trudy Harrison, the Mayor of Copeland Mike Starkie, and the local county councillor for the area, Martin Barbour.
