Cumbria rail line closed after crash

The Carlisle to Whitehaven rail line was closed after a car hit a bridge in Wigton.

The 2.20pm service from Carlisle to west Cumbria was delayed while Network Rail engineers checked the bridge near Wigton station yesterday.

Only minor damage was found and the Northern Rail services were restored later by 3.30pm.

Meanwhile a signalling problem caused disruption between Carlisle and Appleby at about 4.10pm yesterday.

It meant trains between the city and Leeds were delayed by up to 20 minutes.

Earlier in the day a broken down freight train at Penrith caused 45 minute hold-ups on the Carlisle to Lancaster line.

Have we reached saturation point with bars in the city?

No - the more the merrier. It helps to have choice

Yes - we could do with more specialist shops, not bars

As long as they are not all the same I don't mind how many there are
