A road in west Cumbria is closed until further notice because of badgers.

Multiple dens have caused damage around the U4279 near Eskdale. The extent of the damage suggests there is a significant number of badgers in the area, including young cubs.

Cumbria County Council says it's working alongside Natural England to protect the animals while repairs are carried out.

A diversion is in place via A595 and Irton.
