Two walkers were rescued after they got into difficulties in poor weather on a fell.

The pair were found suffering from hypothermia by members of the Cave Rescue Organisation and RAF Leeming Mountain Rescue Team on Simon Fell in the Yorkshire Dales.

The walkers were heading from Ingleborough to Park Fell when they called for help in strong winds and rain, and poor visibility on Sunday just before 11am.

After they were warmed up, they were brought down to the valley at the Hill Inn, Chapel-le-Dale, by the rescuers, with help from the RAF team, which was training in the area.

The Clapham-based CRO carries out rescues on the fells and in the caves and potholes of the Yorkshire Dales.
