A flood warning and multiple flood alerts have been issued across Cumbria.

The warning has been issued for Keswick Campsite, with "flooding expected".

The Environment Agency is warning: "The lake level has risen at the Lodore gauge as a result of Storm Erik causing very heavy rainfall. Consequently, flooding of roads and land is expected through the morning.

"We expect the level in the lake to continue to rise throughout the afternoon, and to peak at about 5pm to 6pm at about1.9m.

"Further rain is expected overnight so levels are expected to remain high into tomorrow."

There has also been 12 alerts issued, including for the Rivers Caldew and Petteril.

A number of areas have seen the river levels rise, with low-lying land potentially seeing localised flooding.

The weather has caused havoc as the high river levels keep increasing with more rain expected over night, leaving roads blocked and slow moving traffic in areas.

Roads affected include the A596 at Birkby, which is partially blocked both ways with slow traffic due to flooding.

Police are advising motorists to approach water on the road with care.
