The A7 is closed in both directions after a 'serious' crash.

It happened close to the A6071 Oak Banks Lakes turn off, just east of Longtown, and involved a car and a motorbike.

Cumbria Police say the road will be closed until further notice while emergency services deal with the collision. Police ask driver to find an alternative route.
