HOLY FECK!!!!!!

I dont think a website link would do this Justice but Drama has unfolded in my neck of the woods.

Gunman kills several in west Cumbria

Several people have been killed and others injured after a gunman opened fire in several areas of west Cumbria.

Police are searching for the suspect, named as Derrick Bird, after shots were fired in Whitehaven, Seascale and Egremont.

He is believed to be heading towards the central Lakes area in a grey or silver Picasso, registration ND55 ZFC.

A force spokesman said officers are working to establish the identities of those killed and wounded.

Police were initially called after shots were fired in Duke Street, Whitehaven, at 1035 BST.

A force spokesman said: "We can confirm that a number of people have been injured after shots were fired in the Whitehaven, Seascale and Egremont areas this morning.

"There are a number of fatalities and police are working to identify the individuals and inform relatives. Ambulance crews are in attendance across the area."

People living across central and west Cumbria are being urged to stay indoors and drivers are being warned not to pick up hitchhikers in case the suspect is on foot.

Central Lakes
The Sellafield nuclear reprocessing plant in west Cumbria has also closed its gates as a safety precaution and afternoon shift workers are being told to stay away until the "risk is reduced".

Anyone who sees Mr Bird, from Rowrah near Frizington, should contact Cumbria Police.

A force spokesman said: "He was last seen heading south in the Central Lakes direction.

"He may have abandoned the car and be proceeding on foot. Armed police are currently working to apprehend him and advising members of the public in West and Central Lakes areas to go indoors and stay there until further notice."

R.I.P to all vics =[

yeh its been awful, I was due to attend a jobcentre interview in whitehaven today at 2:30pm but was told to not come in due to what had happened, Usually though, prior to going to my appointments I usually arrive an hour or two or more earlier in order to take photographs occasionally and to browse local shops for "bargains" and also I go into local computer shops to discuss various topics with the workers, so I could have easily have become a victim here had I been in town a few hours earlier, thankfully though, I wasn't.
