  5. Coronavirus: Cumbrian charity runner stuck in Kosovo

    A woman from Cumbria is stuck in Kosovo after its borders were closed because of coronavirus.

    Rosie Watson, 25, has been running from her home in Penrith to Mongolia to highlight climate change.

    She told BBC Radio Cumbria it was "worrying" but she felt lucky to be in Kosovo because of its "caring" culture.

    Ms Watson, who's staying in a hostel in the remote town of Prizen, said: "it is part of their culture that guests are seen as a blessing and sacred, so we are feeling very looked after, even though everyone is a bit scared."
