Weather warning for Cumbria

The Met Office is warning of heavy rain and potential flooding in Cumbria on Friday night and early Saturday.

Forecasters predict “persistent, heavy rain” over high ground, accompanied by “very windy” conditions.

They expect between 60mm and 80mm of rain to fall over the Cumbrian fells.

Although heavy, that is a fraction of the 314.4mm recorded in a single day at Seathwaite, Borrowdale, in November 2009 when there was widespread flooding in Keswick and west Cumbria.

Would you have welcomed a new Sunday rail service from Carlisle to west Cumbria?

I'd use local rail services more often but they're unreliable and expensive

I would have used the Sunday service

Our rail services are way behind most other countries. No wonder we rely so heavily on cars
