Podcast: Frozen River in North Cumbria

Three weeks of sub zero temperatures in parts of the UK have led to rivers and large stretches of water to start freezing.

In north Cumbria large clumps of ice have started to form on the River Eden in Carlisle.

Some of the more still areas of the river have started to ice over.

Snaking it’s way from high in the Eden Valley,  the Eden is one of the major rivers in the area.

It is thought that the River Eden last froze over around 100 years ago.

This podcast was filmed on the banks of the River just as the sun was setting on Friday 8 January 2010.
