The walker was stretchered down the path from Ingleborough towards Chapel-le-Dale

A walker attempting the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge was rescued after collapsing with exhaustion.

The 36-year-old man was coming down the Swine Tail ridge of Ingleborough after starting out from Chapel-le-Dale early this morning.

The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation was alerted at 9.05am and treated the walker at the scene.

He was then stretchered down the fellside to a team vehicle near Braithwaite Wife Hole which took him to the road near the Hill Inn at Chapel-le-Dale where an ambulance was waiting.

The rescue was the 55th of the year for the team which operates both on the fells of the Dales and in the caves of the area.
