Sally Fielding owns holiday cottages in the Lake District and believes that cancelling the fuel increase will help small businesses and tourism in the region:
It's important for ordinary people, and ordinary people is where the recovery is going to start.
"Cumbria is so sparsely populated, everyone I know gets in the car everyday to go places and to do things, so if we can start there, then brilliant.
When people come and visit Cumbria, they come in their car because it's so isolated, you have to be able to drive.
It's all about small businesses in Cumbria. We've got a few big employers who do employ a lot of people, but the majority are small businesses working together, helping each other and building the economy that way. "
