A Cockermouth street is set to be closed for two weeks while work is carried out on the gas mains.

Northern Gas Networks is planning to carry out the work on Simonscales Lane from May 3.

A spokesman said the work was for a gas mains replacement project.

The U2404 road closure is set to begin at a point 20m south-west of its junction with Norwood Drive, and extend around 210m to the south-west.

A diversion will be in place via the unrestricted sections of Simonscales Lane, Norwood Drive, Dale View and Riverdale Drive.
