Several roads around our region remain closed as a result of today's wild weather.
- Inkerman Terrace to Loop Road in Whitehaven remains closed due to reports from the Esso garage that approximately six corrugated steel roof panels are appearing unsafe and may fall off.
- The A5087, at the junction with road to Leece, Goadbarrow and Dendron remains closed due to flooding in the area and debris on the road.
There are concerns about the Whitehaven Sports Centre and that building’s roof stability.
Police are asking motorists to avoid the areas and use alternative routes
