A MAN who died following a crash on the A66 at Stainmore has been named by police.

Stephen Cloudsdale, 61, of Millom, was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency services on Monday morning.

Police say the family are being supported by specialist officers.

A spokesman said: "The 50-year-old man who was arrested following the collision has since been released under investigation.

"Officers are appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision to contact police.

"They are particularly keen to trace a car driver whose own car was in the vicinity at the time of the crash and may have witnessed the moments leading up to it.

"Anyone who recognises the description of the car – a red Ford Fiesta – and saw it at around the time of the collision (5.25am – 5.30am) is urged to make contact with officers."

Those with information should call police on 101, referencing incident 16 of November 11.
