POLICE have urged motorists to take extra care as driving conditions continue to deteriorate.
Standing water has increased on roads across the county this afternoon as it continues to be hit by heavy rain.
Cumbria Police have asked drivers to reduce their speed.
There are flood warnings in place that apply to all areas of county and, in view of continued rain that is expected, there is likely to be surface water on most roads in Cumbria with the potential for minor flooding.
Motorcyclists have been warned to be particularly careful when rounding bends and avoid travelling at high speeds.
