The walkers were found on Park Fell, a neighbouring fell to Ingleborough

A group of walkers was rescued after getting lost in low cloud on Yorkshire’s second-highest peak.

The five men and boys, aged between 13 and 49, called for help after they lost their way coming down from Ingleborough in the Yorkshire Dales.

The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation received a report shortly before 3pm that the walkers were wet, cold and lost.

The rescue team put two search dogs and handlers on to the fell from Chapel-le-Dale and Colt Park, north-west and north-east of the summit respectively. The walking group was discovered on a neighbouring fell.

A team spokesperson said: “The party was quickly found on Park Fell and brought off the hill.”

The rescue was the team’s 13th of 2012.
