Police have named the holidaymaker who died after falling more than 300ft into a Lake District ravine yesterday.

Elisabeth Huber from Heimberg, Switzerland, was holidaying in Cumbria and was walking with a group of people when she fell about 100m at 1.50pm in Dungeon Ghyll, Great Langdale.

Landale Ambleside and Kendal Mountain Rescue Teams were both called out to the incident, but the 68-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

A Sea King search and rescue helicopter from RAF Valley, Anglesey, also flew to the site to help in the operation.

A spokesperson for Cumbria Constabulary said: “Police are not treating her death as suspicious at this stage and have passed the case onto the coroner.

“Police officers in Cumbria are working with Interpol to support Ms Huber’s family in Switzerland.”
