A second person has died after falling from a Lake District scrambling route, five days after a similar incident.
The 37-year-old woman fell to her death from Jack’s Rake on Pavey Ark yesterday, Wednesday.
Police have named her as Susannah Cox of Lancaster.
A Cumbria Constabulary spokesman said they were alerted about 1.45pm.
“The air ambulance, Langdale Ambleside and Kendal Mountain Rescue Teams were deployed to the scene and first aid was administered but tragically she was later pronounced dead.
“There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death and the case will be passed to the coroner.”
On Friday, Howard Gladwyn, 48, of Menston, West Yorkshire, fell between 700ft and 800ft (213m and 244m) from the grade-one scrambling route on the 700m (2,297ft) fell in Great Langdale.
