Three bridges washed away by floods in Cumbria

Cumbria police have confirmed that three bridges in the county have been "washed away" by the floods: the B5295 bridge at Braithwaite, Fitz Footbridge in Keswick, and Pooley Bridge in the Eden District.

More remain closed or damaged and the police are reminding people to completely avoid bridges that are underwater until they have been checked and made safe as they pose a "danger to life".
