With the general election just weeks away, there is no doubt that Cumbrian households will be considering their vote.

Among the party leaders hoping to be successful are the Conservative's Rishi Sunak, Labour's Sir Keir Starmer and the Liberal Democrats' Sir Ed Davey.

They’ve been travelling across the UK as part of their campaigns recently to mixed receptions. Each campaign has so far divided voters for varying reasons.
