Work has begun to build a new temporary car park for the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle.

It will be positioned next to Reiver House in the hospital grounds, and will house 100 staff parking spaces.

It's hoped this will ease congestion in the main car parks, which are used by patients and members of the public.

Building work is due to be completed in the next two to three weeks.
