Liberal Democrats leader and South Lakeland MP Tim Farron has described his 'worry' for his constituents following the UK's decision to leave the European Union.
Speaking to ITV Border, he said:
I worry about farmers in our community, I worry about the tourism industry, but when all said and done, the people have decided & we have to accept what they have said.
The majority of people in my area voted to remain but across the country people voted to leave and you've got to accept the democratic mandate of the people.
Just got to do our best now to make sure our part of the world at least doesn't suffer as much as it looks like it's going to.
Cumbria Chamber of Commerce says 'Cumbria has been a major beneficiary of EU funding over the years'
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.
