The Taste Cumbria festival is set to go ahead this weekend in Cockermouth, with businesses from across the county invited to trade at the event.

Despite this week's devastating floods, organisers are pressing ahead with the event and have asked businesses from all industries and areas of the county to set up stalls.

The event will take place on Saturday and Sunday, and the Cockermouth by Candlelight event on Friday will also still go ahead.

Members of the public are also being urged to support local businesses by attending.

A hotline has been set up by organisers CN Events for businesses that want to trade at the event.

The number to call is 01228 612333, or you can email
