'There are very few mills like this left'

Almost £1.4 million has been awarded by the Heritage Lottery Fund to help restore a Cumbrian mill.

North of England Civic trust plans to buy the property and run it as a working mill.

It wants to open it as a tourist attraction with a traditional bakery on the site.

The Trust says the mill, which has remained almost unchanged since the 1840s, is one of very few like it left in the country.

Police are appealing for witnesses following an attack on Botchergate in Carlisle in the early hours of this morning.

A 26-year-old man from Carlisle was left with both face and abdomen injuries following an assault in Walkabout just after 12am.

He was taken to the Cumberland Infirmary for treatment and has since been discharged.

A 21-year-old man from Carlisle has been arrested on suspicion of GBH and is currently helping police with their enquiries.

We are appealing to anyone who was in Walkabout in the early hours of this morning, and saw the attack, to get in touch.

"The incident occurred just outside of the male toilets so there may be a number of witnesses.

"I would ask anyone who saw anything to get in touch and help with our investigation."

– Sgt Esther Wood, Cumbria Constabulary
