Two men were rescued from a Lake District mountain after getting stuck on steep ground.

The walkers, from Hull, called for help after getting cragfast on Grasmoor today.

Cockermouth Mountain Rescue Team was alerted at 4.40pm and 23 members of the team went to the aid of the pair, aged 24 and 28.

The walkers were in Lorton Gully on the west face of the 852m (2,795ft) fell, overlooking Crummock Water.

A team spokesperson said: “They were roped from the gully and walked off the hill by the team.”
