Lake District avalanche warning

A warning has been issued about the high risk of an avalanche in the Cumbrian fells.

Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team says several metres of snow have been reported at Raise, in the Lake District.

They tweeted today: "Five metres of snow on Raise. Ski tow and hut buried. Avalanche risk in the area high."

The Lake District Ski Club operates a 360 metre button tow on Raise, next to Helvellyn.

Meanwhile the Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for ice in Cumbria and south west Scotland covering from 8pm Saturday until 10am Sunday.

Severe weather closed a number of high pass roads in Cumbria yesterday.

More wintry showers are forecast on the fells tomorrow.

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
