    Yes we can look it up on Google and figure out where Cumbria is. However it is common news standards that any city not considered a Dateline (popular cities like Paris, London, Los Angeles, New York are examples,) needs to be listed along with its country. It would’ve been nice if you could’ve noted somewhere in this story that it is in the U.K. so your audience wouldn’t need to exit your website to figure it out.
