Around 100 properties in Cumbria are still without power after storms damaged overhead powerlines in the region.

Electricity North West says over the weekend 12,000 customers in the north west were affected.

Its engineers have been working since 5am this morning to restore power, however a small number of properties in Egremont, Arnside, Coniston and Grange-over-Sands are still without power.
