Flooding in Cumbria
-Highest rainfall recorded at Blencathra. About 93.8 mm fell in the past 24 hours.
-All train services between Carlisle and Glasgow or Edinburgh or between Maryport at Carlisle cancelled.
-Rivers burst their banks in Croston and Darwen. Several people evacuated in Lancashire.
-Denton Holme reported as the worst hit areas of the county.
-Maryport Harbour Festival, Wigton Carnival, outdoor events at Cockermouth Live! and Hutton-in-the-Forest Horse Trials near Penrith all postponed.
-High alert for the people living near River Caldew in Carlisle at the Viaduct, Denton Holme and Bitts Park.

This is what Matt Crump, Environment Agency operations manager said:

"We've seen some really significant rainfalls come in across Cumbria, that's caused quite significant levels in the rivers to rise. We've been very fortunate that a fairly few number of properties have flooded. Obviously for those who were flooded it's been a very difficult and traumatic day and it can take a long time to recover. But our defenses seemed to have held up very well so far across Cumbria and we are very positive that they've protected a lot of people"

-The Cumbrian floods of 2009 resulted in a £276m bill.
-Cumbria is a non-metropolitan county in North West England.
