Police are currently raiding two properties in west Cumbria.

Cordons are currently in place at Casson Road and Newlands Gardens, both in Workington, as officers carry out enquiries concerning a man wanted on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and possession of an offensive weapon.

Armed officers have been deployed to both areas as a precaution.

A spokesman for Cumbria Police said: "There is no perceived risk to members of the public at this time, however officers ask that the two areas be avoided while the enquiries are conducted."
