    South Lakeland MP Tim Farron has urged the government to fund a temporary solution to get the A591 reopened, in order to support local businesses.

    South Lakes MP Farron has criticised the government for failing to provide the necessary funds to restore Cumbria's infrastructure, as roads and bridges across the county remain closed.

    It is estimated that the total cost of restoring the infrastructure damaged by flooding in Cumbria is around £500million. However, the government has so far only given around £40million for this purpose, leaving a £460million shortfall.
