Women's suffrage centenary: Searching for descendants in our region

This year it will be 100 years since women were given the right to vote.

ITV Border wants to trace descendants of women from our region, who were suffragettes - Miss Slee of Carlisle, Mary Benson of Kendal, Miss Bendelack of Keswick and Miss Laurence of Penrith.

We also want to hear from relatives of any other suffragettes from Cumbria or southern Scotland.
