A NUMBER of flood warnings and alerts remain in place for Cumbria today.

However, Steward Mounsey, flood risk manager for the Environment Agency has said it is unlikely levels will reach the same heights as Storm Ciara.

He explained: "Thankfully now the rain has stopped and we're only going to see occasional showers today.

"The rivers in south Cumbria are now falling, the Derwent will peak this afternoon.

"The River Eden is a focus for attention, in Appleby we will see peaks of 3m, that's just below where it gets onto the Sands.

"All of the peaks have been less than Storm Ciara.

"We saw a gap in the rain which has made a huge difference."
