Cumbrian entrepreneurs are being encouraged to hop on the 'StartUp Britain' bus. It is part of a national campaign to help new businesses get off the ground.
The bus has been parked in Carlisle and is offering advice and workshops. It has been co-ordinated by the University of Cumbria, local councils and the Chamber of Commerce.
The organisers say it is a great opportunity for people in Cumbria to take the plunge, set up their own business and boost the local economy
