The Coast to Coast route near Greenup Edge

A walker attempting the Coast to Coast route had to be rescued last night after getting lost in the Lake District.

The man, who was walking alone, became disoriented on the section between Borrowdale and Grasmere.

Langdale and Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team was alerted about 8pm yesterday, Friday, and 13 team members mounted a search for the walker.

A spokesperson said he was found cold and very wet near Greenup Edge in an operation lasting six hours.

Members of the rescue team walked the man off the fell.

The Coast to Coast Walk, devised by author Alfred Wainwright, is a 309km (192-mile) route traversing northern England, from St Bees Head in Cumbria to Robin Hood’s Bay in North Yorkshire.
