Flood water that surrounded shops and cut off access to a business park has been cleared by firefighters and highways workers.
Heavy overnight rain and a blocked culvert under the road caused flooding just off the A69 in Warwick Bridge this morning that put nearby shops at risk of flood damage and prevented vehicles getting to and from Warwick Mill Business Park.
Firefighters pumped water and worked with Cumbria County Council's highways team to remove vegetation blocking the culvert.
Once the blockage was removed water levels began to subside.
