  3. Floods works delay dismays Keswick businesses

    Some business owners in Keswick have been dismayed by news that flood prevention work on a main road into the town will overrun.

    Cumbria County Council says the scheme to build a pumping station under Penrith Road will not finish in December, as planned, but will continue until February.

    The delay is because of an unexpected water main found in the way of the excavation, and the number of large river boulders that have been encountered.
