Members of Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team have rescued a 53-year-old who became lost on Dove Crag in the Lake District.

He had been trying to locate the Priest Hole - mountain rescue team members found him on early on Sunday afternoon and escorted him to safety.

The Team would like to remind people that whilst the Priest Hole is marked on the map, the access route is not and it is very difficult to find. The Priest Hole is surrounded by dangerous ground and should only be tackled by competent people.

The Eden Valley is known for its peaceful, picturesque views - but not today.

Around a 120 riders were in Blencarn for the 3rd round of the British Classic Motocross Championships.

There were 28 races throughout the day for drivers of all ages.

We've got machines from the 50s through to the 80s and it's quite a spectacular event. We don't have the big jumps so it caters for older riders, there's all sorts of ages from 15 and we've got one rider who's 77 years old.

The North West Counter Terrorism Unit is now investigating an incident in Barrow on Friday night.

Cumbria Police arrested a 19-year-old man on suspicion of making threats to kill.

The force had warned people to stay away from an LGBT event taking place on Dalton Road in Barrow on Friday night. Armed police were called to the area as a precaution.

I can confirm that following further enquiries it was determined that it would be appropriate for the investigation to be led by the North West Counter Terrorism Unit. We will support them, as required, with their ongoing investigation.

Police say they do not believe there is a wider threat to the local community.

Military personnel past, present and future have been taking part in a parade in Carlisle to mark Armed Forces Day.

It was one of more than 300 events taking place across the country.

It means a terrible lot because it brings back lots of memories of people I served with over the years and of course it's good that the civilian population appreciate what we did in the wars.
