HGV driver Paul Holland stopped off for a healthy bacon roll for his breakfast.
Carlisle Truckstop is offering healthier versions of the traditional truckers breakfast, the 'fry up', by cooking up fresh alternatives.
Nearly 300,000 HGV drivers travel through Cumbria each year, with the region supporting one of the UK's busiest motorways, the M6.
New research shows that nearly a third of UK truckers are obese or morbidly obese.
The research, carried out by Morrisons 'NuMe' healthy eating range, found that the limited choice of healthy food at service stations is the main reason for the trucking community's expanding waistlines.
Carlisle truckstop is offering truck drivers healthy 'fry downs' instead of 'fry ups', in a bid to encourage healthier diets.
Truckers will also be given 'Weigh-by' health checks, with BMI checks and one-to-one advice while 'on the road'.
