Three women from Carlisle who went to New York for the trip of a lifetime have found themselves in the middle of super storm Sandy.

Sarah Ledger, a teacher from William Howard school, Lyn Gathercole and Kate James arrived in the city on Sunday but soon found themselves in lockdown.

Sarah, who had been saving for the trip for two years, has told ITV Border that despite being disappointed not to be able to see some of the sights the friends are determined to make the most of the experience. She explained how New Yorkers seem to be coping.
