The council has urged Cumbrians to support a new emergency service for homeless 16-25 year olds.

The council has asked people in Cumbria to support a new service to provide emergency accommodation for homeless 16 to 25 year olds.
The service, called Nightstop, will see host volunteers in Cumbria offer free spare rooms in their homes to those in need for one night.
The vicar of Alston Moor, Reverend Mark Nash-Williams, has already signed up to help after previously supporting the scheme in the North East.
