Roads reopen across Cumbria after gales yesterday

Roads across Cumbria reopen after yesterday's storms.

The A5087, at the junction with road to Leece, Goadbarrow and Dendron was closed due to flooding in the area and debris on the road. It reopened last night.

Inkerman Terrace to Loop Road in Whitehaven was closed due to reports from the Esso garage that approximately six corrugated steel roof panels are appearing unsafe. This road reopened this morning.

The Whitehaven Harbour wall sustained damage and the area had been cordoned off.

A HGV was recovered from the M6 between Junction 44 and 45 after an incident.

BAE Systems in Barrow was forced to cancel its flights at Walney Airfield yesterday due to the adverse weather.

The A66 re-opened yesterday following the earlier precautionary closure by Durham Constabulary to high-sided vehicles.
