Cumberland Council’s Distington Walled Garden fete planned for Saturday 13 April has been cancelled.

A spokesperson from the council said: "Unfortunately, due to the adverse weather forecast and saturated ground conditions we have had to cancel the Spring Fete which was due to take place this Saturday (13 April).

"This wasn’t an easy decision to make, but the safety of our visitors and traders is our main priority.

"We apologise for any disappointment this may cause. Future events are planned in July and September."
