Police stand next to a body following a shooting on  Duke Street, Whitehaven, Cumbria.

A gunman is on the loose in the Lake District after at least one person was shot dead and several more were injured.

Alan Hannah, 68, of Great Broughton, told the Whitehaven News: "As I turned past the police station, I saw all these officers running out and realised something major was going on so I moved over to the right-hand lane.

"Then a car pulled up on the left, stopping at the lights. I saw a man with a large shotgun and his windscreen was smashed. I drove through the red light to get into Lowther Street and get out of the way. I got home safely but was very shaken."
