A Cumbria doctor's surgery is reopening 10 months after it was flooded.

Patients have been visiting a portable building for appointments since Derwent House in Cockermouth was damaged in November 2009.

Work began fixing the premises in Wakefield Road in April and the surgery will reopen on 13 September.

A policeman died and hundreds of people were left homeless in the floods, which hit Cockermouth, Workington and Keswick.
