The Radio 1 Big Weekend will be taking place this weekend at Carlisle Airport.
Can we remind patients travelling to our sports injury clinic at Warwick Bridge, that the routes along the A69 and A689 are likely to be busy.

Lady Gaga, the Foo Fighters and the other performers will no doubt be arriving imminently along with thousands of eager spectators.
All people visiting our historic border city of Carlisle for the Radio 1 Big Weekend will be very welcome, but we remind you that you are coming to Cumbria.
