Cumbria police issue strong winds warning

Strong winds are making driving hazardous in exposed parts of the county, police have warned.

Traffic officers have today been called to a number of weather related accidents.

They include ones on the A66 near Stainmore where a caravan and a van were blown over this morning.

Nobody was injured in either accident.

Police are now advising drivers of any high sided vehicles to avoid the A66 in that area.

In some parts of the county, wind is gusting at up to 50mph.

Conditions on the M6 between junctions 37 and 39 are also said to be hazardous because of wind and rain and the speed limit is currently 50mph.

Is it time to reintroduce the dog licence?

Yes - It would certainly make people more responsible about looking after their pets

No - Some people will just abandon dogs whether they've paid for a licence or not

Maybe - but also all dogs should be microchipped and tagged so owners can be traced
