A DRONE has captured a spectacular footage of a frozen Talkin Tarn during the recent cold snap.

The picturesque scene was captured by Carlisle based photographer Alastair Herd and was recently posted on the Discover Carlisle Facebook page with the message: "We know you can’t visit right now.

"You must stay at home.

"We will continue to share our content - and we look forward to welcoming you back soon."

The footage comes as more icy weather was forecast by the Met Office yesterday.

It issued a yellow weather warning and stated that further rain and freezing temperatures may result in icy patches across the area.

They said: "Further showers on Thursday night will leave surfaces wet. As ground temperatures fall below freezing, ice is likely to form in places.

"Some of the showers will be wintry, especially on high ground, with one to two cm of snow possible above 200 metres."

The warning came into effect across parts of Cumbria from 4pm yesterdy to 10am today (January 22).

The Met Office said that icy surfaces will lead to difficult travel conditions.

Adding that there will probably be icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

Areas affected include Silloth, Wigton, Keswick, Whitehaven, Workington, Sedburgh and Millom.

The icy conditions came after the county was drenched with many instances of flooding, including in Brampton close ot Talkin Tarn.

A number of roads in the area became impassable including parts of the A6701 near the Irthing Bridge.

On Wednesday firefighters from Carlisle West Fire Station battled to save property from flooding in Moorhouse, a village ot the east of Carlisle, after they received a call at 10.45pm after rising water levels threatened the electrics.

The crew were at the scene for about two hours.
