Andrew William Telford Coates, 41, of Buttermere Drive, Kendal, was killed together with Polly Sarah Connor, 46, of Sepulchre Lane, Kendal, at the weekend.

They died following an explosion and blaze at Ecclerigg, near Windermere, on Saturday.

They had been helping to stage a fireworks display at the wedding party of local insurance boss John Simpson and his bride, Nicole.

The fire is not being treated as suspicious but the police, fire service and other agencies are working to establish the circumstances and cause.

A tribute to Mrs Connor was paid by her mother earlier this week.

What faith do you have in rail services in Cumbria improving?

Every. Anything better than what we have currently is an improvement

None. There's little substance to what the Government is saying for the general passenger

It will get better - but only once old trains are taken off the tracks
