Mountain rescuers took to the Lakeland fells today after a walker rang police to say he was exhausted.

Ten members of the Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team went to the man’s aid this afternoon after the walker, who was with a companion and two children on the High Street range, called 999.

The man, from Liverpool, told police he could not walk any further.

The walker was brought down from the fell by the team’s Land Rover ambulance and transferred to an NHS ambulance.

A spokesperson for the Patterdale team said: “The man underwent tests with the ambulance staff and was found to be fit and well.”

He was able to return to the campsite where he was staying.
