Warning of Cumbrian road problems as heavy rain forecast tomorrow

CUMBRIA Police and partner agencies are urging 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.

The Met office have advised that more heavy rain is due to hit Cumbria again tomorrow (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.


If you need to travel on the roads, please slow down, drive with care and drive to the road / weather conditions – not the speed limit.

Before starting your journey, please check your route, you can keep up to date with the latest situation on the roads by visiting our Traffic Link Map: http://www.cumbria.police.uk/traffic-link-map
