Farmers are still digging sheep out of snow drifts nearly two weeks after they were buried.
Farmers across the region are still not sure how many of their animals have died but it is likely to be many thousands and the NFU in Cumbria is now asking for the Government to help.
However there are some tales of surviving sheep, including one which has made a full recovery after being buried for 11 days near Newton Stewart.
