A flood warning is in place in parts of north Cumbria.

The warning - the second highest level of alert - runs from Gretna to Silloth, including Port Carlisle, Skinburness and Rockcliffe.

Flood warnings mean "immediate action" is required and people are advised to protect their property.

The Environment Agency has said: "A large tidal surge is expected to affect the foreshore as a result of high spring tides and strong winds. Consequently, flooding of property, roads and farmland is possible between 9.45 and 1.45 tomorrow.

"We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are checking defences and closing flood gates."

"Please be careful along beaches, promenades, coastal footpaths and roads as large waves and sea spray could be dangerous and activate any property flood protection products you may have, such as flood barriers and air brick covers."

At this time, there are a number of separate alerts the lowest warning level for the county. They are:

Coast at Barrow in Furness

Coast at Duddon estuary

Coast at North Morecambe Bay

Coast from Gretna to Silloth

Coast from Silloth to St Bees

Coast from St Bees Head to Millom

Rivers Duddon, Crake and Mill Beck
