Carlisle floods last weekend from Storm Desmond.
This morning we decided to follow the advice on Radio Cumbria that ‘Cumbria is open for business’ and go to Carlisle to complete our Christmas shopping.
When we arrived it was so sad to see the devastation around Warwick road near the football ground.
The army was helping people move their ruined possessions into the road for collection.
Furthermore, road after road around the area we saw everything from sofas, washing machines bedding, tables and chairs all destroyed by the floodwater.
What an absolute shame it is for the people of this great city whose homes and businesses have been flooded.
