Icy conditions in Cumbria cause more than 100 crashes

Emergency services in Cumbria dealt with more than 100 road traffic incidents earlier, all caused by freezing rain.

The A66 trans-Pennine route was closed for several hours after a number of lorries jackknifed near Stainmore.

The M6 and the A66 near Penrith also saw a number of crashes. There were no serious injuries reported.

The Met Office say there would be further risk of ice overnight, with temperatures again dropping below zero.
