Three hurt in crash on motorway near Carlisle

Three people were taken to hospital after a crash on the M6 which closed a section of the northbound carriageway for nearly five hours.

It happened at about 5pm between junctions 41 at Catterlen and junction 42 at Carlisle South – about a mile before Southwaite Services.

The crash involved a black VW Golf, a black Ford Focus and an HGV. All three vehicles were travelling north at the time.

An 81-year-old man, a 76-year-old woman and a 33-year-old man were all taken to the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle. Their injuries were not thought to be serious.

The motorway was closed so that the vehicles could be recovered.

A diversion was in operation.

Police are trying to establish the cause of the crash and are investigating.

Witnesses should contact PC 747 Stitt at the roads policing unit 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
