A depressing headline from the Carlisle News & Star, spotted outside the post office at Silloth.
There wasn't much to do there. The tide was high, so I couldn't see the beach, just a concrete breakwater. There were good views of Criffel and the new Robin Rigg wind farm, as well as a Lifeboat station.
The post office was open, so I picked up the Westmoreland Gazette for a chance to play Spot the Dog again. The latest anomalous big cat news made the front page, whilst page three reported that a Mercedes had been scratched.
It was one of those mornings where I'm glad I don't live in Cumbria anymore.
