More storms hit the region

Dozens of homes are still without power this evening after severe weather in West Cumbria damaged buildings and caused disruption on the roads.

The M6 Southbound was closed after a lorry overturned near Tebay and the A6 was blocked at Shap because of a fallen tree.

With more wind and rain expected, the emergency services are urging people to take care.
