The overturned car

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.

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
