A group of lost Yorkshire Three Peaks walkers was among nine people rescued in a day that saw an area’s three mountain rescue teams called out to incidents which ended with all found safe and well.
The Yorkshire Dales’ three mountain rescue teams were called out to separate incidents on Tuesday, on the fells of the national park.
Six walkers rang for help when they got lost in the darkness and thick cloud on Ingleborough.
The five women and one man, aged between 35 and 55, reported they were lost while coming down from the 724m (2,375ft) hill. The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation was alerted about 10.05pm.
Four search dogs joined the hunt for the walkers who were found near Brunt Riggs on the eastern side of the fell, near Fell Beck Head.
CRO volunteers helped the walkers the 2.5km (1½miles) to Trow Gill to a waiting team vehicle.
The CRO also helped neighbouring team Upper Wharfedale Fell Rescue Association earlier in the day when it was called out to search for a missing couple in the area round Buckden Pike.
The Upper Wharfedale team was called out at 4.30pm when the pair, in their mid-50s, rang 999 after getting lost.
The CRO used mobile phone software and digital mapping to get an accurate location, and Upper Wharfedale team volunteers were found on Walden Moor, east of the 702m (2,303ft) summit of the hill.
A UWFRA spokesperson said: “They had taken sensibly taken refuge in a shooting hut after having walked over the watershed in low cloud and mist.
“They had a map but no compass.”
Meanwhile, Swaledale Mountain Rescue Team was called out to look for a missing person in Coverdale, just east of the search that was continuing for the Buckden Pike walkers.
A police helicopter joined the search, and a search dog was also called in, but was not needed when the missing person was found.
