There is heavy traffic congestion this morning on the A6 Milnthorpe Road at Kendal due to gas works and temporary three-way traffic lights near Wattsfield Road.

Northbound vehicles are queing as far back as the A591 turn-off for Kendal.

One eye-witness described the traffic congestion as 'an absolute nightmare'.


Traffic heading out of Kendal is queuing as far back as Nether Bridge over the River Kent.
