B5289 Borrowdale Valley Road flooded in parts. Please exercise care
Police are warning motorists to adjust their speed due to deteriorating road conditions.
The warning comes after heavy rainfall across the county, and road conditions, particularly in West Cumbria, continue to deteriorate.
On the A591 between St John’s in the Vale and Thirlspot vehicles have broken down following attempts to drive through surface water flooding.
“There have been numerous reports of minor road disruption across the county today due to rainfall.
"Whilst it is only minor disruption at this time we ask that motorists take care, slow down and drive to the conditions.
“Motorists should allow extra time for a journey and not attempt to drive through flooded roads.
“We also ask that those who are walking, or those planning to do so, ensure that they have all the appropriate equipment and are prepared for the changing conditions.”
Please be aware when out on the roads today - due to heavy rain, the county is experiencing localised flooding. Drive with caution.
A scheme is underway in the Scottish Borders to teach young teenagers how to drive, long before they're old enough to take the test.
The idea is to build their road awareness skills, and ensure they're fully prepared to take the wheel.

Motorists should be aware that many roads across the region are affected by poor driving conditions due to heavy hail, snow and rain.
A number of collisions have occurred in the east of the region. Drivers are reminded to slow down, take care and drive according to the road conditions.
With colder temperatures on the way, Cumbria Police warn drivers to be prepared for winter.Read the full story ›
