Police ask fans to 'respect all properties' as they move around Carlisle

Cumbria Police have given advice to those planning on attending today's Carlisle v Everton FA Cup tie at Brunton Park.

They have suggested that road users avoid using junction 43 and Warwick Road this afternoon as it is likely to be congested.
