A Vauxhall Corsa - being driven by a 17-year-old youth - flipped onto its roof on Cleator Moor Road, close to the entrance to Whitehaven School.

The incident happened at 3.10pm, just before the school finished, and neither the driver nor any passers-by were hurt in the incident.

The road was partially closed as the emergency services worked to clear the scene, on the junction of Cleator Moor Road and Queens Close.

Engineers also attended to make the scene safe as the car had struck an electricity box.
