A group of walkers lost on England’s third highest mountain were guided to safety by a mountain biker.

The four called for help after they got disoriented today on Helvellyn.

Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 5.30pm to search for the group on the 950m (3,117ft) summit.

A team spokesperson said: “A passing mountain biker kindly guided the walkers from the summit shelter to Thirlmere while the team were searching for the missing group.”
