News from our corner of the Cumbrian Lake District
Lake District is closed
The Lake District's businesses remain closed, so please stay away.
That is the message from Richard Leafe, the Lake District National Park Authority's chief executive.
Concerned about Cumbria's infection rate, he said: "Following the Government's announcement that people will be able to travel for exercise from Wednesday, we know many will be keen to visit the Lake District.
"Cumbria currently has one of the highest Covid-19 infection rates in the UK, therefore keeping our staff and communities safe must remain our priority.
"We're asking people not to rush back to the Lake District - help protect our communities, the fells will still be here when this passes.
"Many businesses across the Lake District remain closed."
