The UK's decision to vote to leave the EU was not a shock, according to the chairman of the NFU in Cumbria.
David Raine, who farms near Kirkoswald, says the agricultural industry in the county was very divided on the issue. He points to issues such as frustration with EU bureaucracy and a desire to take back control as being factors leading many farmers to vote to leave.
But speaking to ITV Border he said it would now pose "significant challenges" for the industry.

Jamie Reed MP has said that "...many people have voted to make their lives worse because they don’t believe that life can get better."
Although a majority across the south of Scotland wanted to remain, only one area of Cumbria wanted to stay within the EU.
