Trouble down across Cumbria on Black Eye Friday

Police across Cumbria reported little trouble as revellers took to the bars to celebrate the last Friday before Christmas.

Patrol: Botchergate

In Carlisle, 18 people were taken into the cells last night for what police described as “low-level” drunkenness. There were six arrests in Whitehaven and two in Workington.

A police spokesman said they were pleased people seemed to have heeded the warnings to behave themselves on what has been traditionally dubbed Black Eye Friday.

He said: “Generally we are pleased with the way the night went. There were no serious incidents - it was all happily festive.”

Extra patrols were in place to cope with a traditionally busy night for pubs and clubs.
