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.

Should people who call on mountain rescue teams unnecessarily be charged and/or asked to make a donation?

Yes. A donation is the least they should offer

No. But people who don't know how to identify an emergency should be deterred from roaming the fells

Nobody can budget for panic, fear and lack of consideration
