    Carlisle has seen some of the sharpest rises in Covid rates in England.

    One of the reasons, according to the director of public health in Cumbria, is that many people there simply cannot afford to stop work and self-isolate.

    Mounting cases have meant Carlisle’s hospital has had to transfer some patients to Newcastle and across the border into Scotland.
