A speed restriction has been put into force on the M6 as a result of strong winds.

The Tebay and Shap areas of the motorway are affected by Storm Erik.

Gales are currently so strong they are making driving conditions difficult.

A 50mph speed limit has been put in place between Junction 38 at Tebay and Junction 39, at Shap.

Police are urging motorists to take extra care and drive to the conditions.
