Manhunt underway as several die in UK shootings


A manhunt is underway in Northern England after several people were killed during a shooting spree.

The public have been told to stay indoors after a series of shootings in towns along the coast of West Cumbria, a mainly rural and isolated area on the verge of the country’s famous Lake District.

Police have identified the man as a 52-year-old from a local village. He is believed to be on foot and members of the public have been warned not to approach him.

The nearby Seascale nuclear power station is under lockdown.

The number of dead is as yet unconfirmed by police, but is believed to be in double figures.
