A party of walkers managed to get themselves out of difficulty after calling mountain rescuers for help.

Cockermouth Mountain Rescue Team was called about 4.05pm today, Saturday, and nine members went to the aid of the party on Anglers Crag area overlooking Ennerdale Water.

A team spokesperson said: “A man walking in the Anglers Crag area in Ennerdale had a panic attack when his party lost the path on relatively steep ground.

“By the time the team arrived, the party had successfully made its own way down to the lakeshore path and required no further assistance.”
