Storm Desmond: A591 reopens in time for Lakes tourist season

A major road in the Lake District which collapsed during Storm Desmond has reopened three weeks ahead of schedule.

A three-mile (4.8km) section of the A591 was closed in December after a landslip between Dunmail Raise, north of Grasmere, and Thirlmere.

Danny Savage reports.
