Motorists on one of Cumbria's busiest routes will face three weeks of disruption from today.

The westbound carriageway on the A66 at Bassenthwaite is closing for Highways England to upgrade speed cameras and carry out routine maintenance.

While the westbound route is closed drivers will use a single lane on the eastbound carriageway.
