A popular music and beer festival has been forced to cancel this year's event due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Silloth Music and Beer Festival 2020 will no longer take place in September.

Instead, the event has been moved to 2021. In a post on Facebook, David Wallace, the chairman, said: "As Cumbria's longest-running festival we hoped it might be possible to go ahead this year."

"However, the continuing need for social distancing and our concern for the safety of all our supporters, our regulars, our volunteers and our town means we have taken the difficult decision to cancel our festival this year," he added.
