Look at their Business Recovery Toolkit for more information to support your recovery. See http://www.cumbriagrowthhub.

Warwick Bridge is still closed on the A69 to traffic wanting to go east. Cumbria Police are still asking people not to travel unless they have to. Even where water levels have dropped there is loads of debris left behind. Not everyone has power and therefore connectivity is becoming a problem. People in Warwick Road are now being evacuated.
