The group was rescued from Lingmell Col

An alsatian dog was among a group rescued from England’s highest mountain after getting into difficulties.

The three walkers and the dog were rescued by members of Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team, who were called out at 4.50pm yesterday.

The trio and their nine-year-old four-legged companion were suffering from the cold on the route between Lingmell Col and Scafell Pike.

The party was warmed up in one of the rescue team’s group shelters and they were then able to walk down to Wasdale Head with help from the Wasdale team.

The rescue operation lasted almost four hours and involved 21 volunteer members of the Wasdale team. It was the 16th callout of the year for them.
