Motorists in Cumbria are being urged to take extra care due to worsening weather conditions and heavy rainfall.
Cumbria Police say driving conditions have deteriorated after the first heavy downpour following weeks of dry weather.
There has been a road traffic collision on the A595 between Wabberthwaite and Bootle near to the Swallowhurst junction, which police are currently dealing with.
The road is blocked and motorists are advised to use alternative routes.
Road surfaces have become slippery or ‘greasy’ and officers are particularly concerned about the dangers this presents for bikers and motorway users.
Motorists are advised to reduce their speed, take extra care and be particularly aware of motorcycles around them.
A major operation to target motoring offences across the Scotland/England border has been hailed as a success.
Almost 400 offences were detected during the two day initiative last week.
Six police forces teamed up to carry out roadside checks on more then 700 vehicles travelling across the border.
32 vehicles were seized after the drivers were found to have no insurance or license, and a further 200 offences were found.
An estimated £32,000 worth of stolen equipment was also recovered during the operation.
On the first day of 'Operation Overlord', police stopped 350 vehicles on roads in the south of Scotland, Cumbria and north-east England.
200 traffic offences, from serious to minor, were recorded.
Eighteen vehicles were seized as a result of drivers not having a license or insurance. One vehicle was seized after it was found to contain illegal red diesel.
A stolen mini-road roller and a stolen quad bike were also recovered, and three people were taken into custody.
Inspector Brian Jones from Lothian and Borders Police was at a checkpoint near Eyemouth on the A1 today.
“We try and do these checks every three or four months first and foremost it gives reassurance that we are out there, trying to deter criminals from using our road network.
"And also, criminals nowadays aren’t like Miami Vice, they use the road networks to get from A to B.
"So it is very important we nip those people in the bud when they are crossing between Scotland and England. "
A total of six police forces have joined together to target motoring criminals on the southern Scotland and northern England border.
As well as searching vehicles, other supporting agencies, such as the Benefits Agency and the Motor Insurance Bureau, will help identify people responsible for other crimes like metal theft and drug trafficking.
A joint operation to search vehicles on the Scottish/English border is being carried out by police from north of England and southern Scotland forces.
It is hoped that the operation will help identify motorists carrying out offences such as speeding, drink and drug driving, driving without a seatbelt and driving without a valid licence.
Motorists are being advised to drive with caution due to heavy rain and flood water on the roads in West Cumbria.
Cumbria Police say there have been several reports of flooding in the Allerdale and Copeland areas and the Highways agency have been informed.
Morotists are being warned to take care on roads across Dumfries and Galloway due to the heavy rain that has been falling.
Many roads across the region are becoming flooded because of water running off adjacent fields and verges, often carrying stones and gravel with it and motorists are being warned to be aware of standingwater on many roads, and the dangers of driving in such circumstances.
Lights should also be switched on when visibility is poor.At present the A75 road through Dumfries and Galloway is closed at Twynholm because of flooding and diversions are being put on which will take motorists around this closure.
