A body was recovered from the River Eden near Lazonby on Saturday evening, following a multi-agency search operation.

The man, who has yet to be identified, fell into the river at about 3.20pm on Saturday and was found at about 9pm.

The fire service dealt with a further four water-related incidents in north Cumbria over the Easter weekend.
