Cliff Robson, BAE Systems Submarines Managing Director, said: "We are delighted to be supporting such a prestigious national sporting event, taking place right here in the heart of our community.

"There can't be many places more challenging or beautiful to cycle than Cumbria, so it's great the tour organisers have picked Barrow as the starting point for one of the stages.

"I'm sure the community will be out in force to support the race, making it a memorable day for the town and visitors alike."
