A Cumbrian man has died in a crash on the A6 between Penrith and Carlisle.

David Robinson, of Cross Garth, Shap, died in a collision between his Ford Escort and an HGV near Petteril Green, at about 18:15 GMT on Monday.

The 50-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. The lorry driver, a 53-year-old man from Hull, was uninjured but needed treatment for shock.

Mr Robinson's son, Christopher Pickering, said he was a "good man" who died driving the car "he loved".

"He worked very hard and kept his family happy," his family said in a statement.

"He kept himself to himself but had an outgoing personality. He was very kind.

"He had a big group of friends scattered all over the country. He will be missed by many."

Cumbria Police are appealing for any witnesses to the collision to contact them.
