Today, businesses from across the county, including Hawkshead Relish, Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery and Pennington's Tea and Coffee, made the trip down to London to showcase the best of Cumbria.

During Prime Minister's Questions this afternoon, Tim encouraged MPs from across the House to attend the event and to sample the best food and drink that the county has to offer.

Tim said: "This year's Cumbria Day was another resounding success.

"As ever it was a brilliant opportunity to shine the spotlight on the most beautiful county on the planet.

"There was a real buzz at the event, and I hope it will help to provide a boost to the county's businesses and tourist trade.

"My thanks go to all the businesses which came to the event, in particular Hawkshead Relish, Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery and Pennington's Tea and Coffee.

"These businesses show the great range of products that South Lakeland has to offer. It is always an honour to represent our area, but events like this make me particularly proud."
