Tributes paid to Middlesbrough student Matthew Jordan

Tributes have been paid to Middlesbrough student Matthew Jordan, after his body was found at Windermere this morning.

He hadn't been seen since he left a pub in Bowness on Windermere after a night out with friends on March 27.

His former criminology tutor at Teesside University and the South Lakes MP are among those paying tribute to the 20-year-old.


So sad to hear the news of our criminology student, Matthew Jordan. Heartbreaking for his family, friends and all who knew him. God bless.x


My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Matthew Jordan who has been found today at Lake Windermere. Taken much too soon.


A life took to early, Rest in peace Matthew Jordan..What a guy! You will be sadly missed by many people ?


Cathedral carvings mystery solved

Carlisle Cathedral is home to carvings that date back 600 years.

A local art historian, who has studied them for 25 years, has made a new discovery about the meaning behind one of the carvings.

They are part of misericords, seats that tip up for the clergy to perch on during long periods of prayer.

Radical changes to Carlisle meal service

The Meals On Wheels service in Carlisle is radically changing.

A not-for-profit co-operative has taken it over and is promising to provide food from local farms.

Fair Meals Direct will prepare the food at the Water Street homeless shelter in Carlisle by a professional chef and provide meals for people living in the city.

Most of the meat and vegetables will be sourced from farms within a 30 miles radius of Carlisle.

They hope that they can expand from the current 25 meals and wheels clients in future.
