Teenage biker in hospital after crash

A 17 year old motorcyclist has been treated in hospital following a crash in Wigton.

The teenager was involved in a collision with a Mitsubishi pick-up truck at the junction of the A596 and Station Road, at Wigton, at about 6pm yesterday evening.

He was treated at the Cumberland Infirmary but his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

The driver of the other vehicle was uninjured.

Police say the road was closed for five hours while officers carried out a collision investigation.

Police are appealing for witnesses.


Weather: Heavy rain on SATURDAY

A large area of rain is expected to push into northwest UK later Friday, and slowly clear southeastwards through Saturday.

A combination of mild, moist air and strong southwesterly winds will lead to rainfall being especially heavy and persistent over higher ground.

30-50 mm is likely quite widely whilst as much as 100 mm could fall on the most exposed sites.
