TWO well-known actors were in Cockermouth and Maryport before taking part in a show at Keswick's Theatre by the Lake.

Michael Cochrane, who played the Captain in the hit TV mini-series Titanic: Blood and Steel, and West End and film actor Robert Portal were both appearing in Dear Lupin on Friday evening.

During the day they enjoyed exploring Cockermouth, where they stopped for a photo outside Wordsworth House, and Maryport, where they went hunting traces of the Titanic’s legacy.
