Cumbria Tourism has said that the UK's decision to leave the European Union will clearly have 'implications' for the industry.
Ian Stephens, Managing Director of Cumbria Tourism, said:
The decision to exit has been made and clearly there are a lot of implications.
The full impact for the UK and Cumbria’s tourism industry is still unknown, but as the body representing more than 60,000 people dependent on the £2.6 billion visitor spending in the county, Cumbria Tourism will be doing everything possible to make sure that there is minimum disruption and that any changes positively impact on travel and tourism.
We will continue to keep our members informed and up-to-date on the changes as they unfold over the coming months.
