Cumbria stations extend news

Local radio in Cumbria dropped regular programming after a fatal rail accident in the county yesterday evening. Local commercial station Lakeland Radio was live into the night with on-the-scene accounts from passengers and news updates, whilst BBC Radio Cumbria broadcast local news reports every 30 minutes rather than networked bulletins from Newcastle..

Chief operating officer for the BBC Caroline Thomson was on the train at the time of the crash and provided an eye-witness account for BBC Radio Cumbria. Kendal District Producer for the station Martin Lewes was also live at the scene.

The Bay and CFM were also live into the night providing regular updates.
