The heavy rain and high winds are continuing to affect the counties roads and can advise that the A591 is passable with care due to flooding and quite treacherous in some areas, particularly from Dunmail Raise towards Grasmere and also on the Keswick side of Dunmail Raise.

There is a lot of surface water on the roads, and police are urging motorists to drive to the road and weather conditions.

Please avoid the area and allow extra time for your journey on alternative routes.
