The man became exhausted while descending from Scafell Pike

A charity walker was rescued after becoming exhausted on England’s highest mountain.

Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team was alerted about 6.10pm yesterday, Sunday when the man was unable to descend any further from Scafell Pike after reaching the Brown Tongue area below Hollow Stones.

The walker was part of a large charity group.

Nineteen volunteers from the Wasdale team were called out to deal with the incident.

A spokesperson for the team said: “Due to concerns for his health a Sea King from RAF Boulmer was requested.

“The casualty was treated on scene and then was winched onto the helicopter for transfer to Whitehaven Hospital.”

The rescue concluded at 10pm.
