Man badly hurt in car collision

A man suffered serious head injuries after being hit by a car.

The incident happened near Chasers pub in Washington Street, Workington, at the junction with Upper Jane Street at around 10.40pm last night.

Police say a blue Ford Fiesta driven by an 18-year-old man from the Workington area was travelling south towards Kwik Fit when it collided with a 36-year-old male pedestrian, also from Workington.

The victim was initially treated at the scene by paramedics but was taken to the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle with serious head injuries.

Officers from the Western Operational Support Unit and the Collision Investigation Unit launched a probe into what happened.

The road was closed for around two-and-a-half hours while the investigation was underway.

Police said this morning there has not yet been an update to the victim's condition.

Police are appealing for witnesses to contact PC Mark Ormerod from the Western Operational Support Unit in Workington on 101.

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
