Cows destroyed after crash on main Cumbrian road

Two cows had to be destroyed after they were hit by a vehicle on the A69 near Brampton.

The alarm was raised just after 5.45pm yesterday (Wednesday) after a vehicle collided with the animals which had strayed onto the road.

A Cumbria police spokesman said the crash involved a white Renault van and blue Volkswagen and the road was blocked in both directions for about 45 minutes while the incident was dealt with.

It was next to Temon farm, on the Cumbria/Northumbria border, between the junctions with the A6079 and the A689.

The police spokesman said that the farmer helped to get the animals from the road.

No-one was seriously hurt but minor injuries were suffered as a result of the collision.

Do you believe Cumbria will be part of the northern powerhouse?

Of course it will. Any shift north is good

No. It's already clear we're not part of it

Only if we speak up and demand to be involved
