Grasmoor, scene of the rescue

A group of walkers called out mountain rescuers today after getting stuck in wintry conditions on a felltop.

Cockermouth Mountain Rescue Team was alerted shortly before 4pm today after the five walkers called to say they were unable to get off the summit of Grasmoor in the icy conditions.

Five team members responded and the party eventually made their way off the 852m (2,795ft) mountain, the summit plateau of which is surrounded on three sides by crags and steep ground.

Three mountain rescuers met the walkers as they made their way down via Lad Hows. The five were all unhurt.
