The three got stuck on Jack's Rake on Pavey Ark

The three got stuck on Jack's Rake on Pavey Ark

Three people were rescued from a Lake District scrambling route by other walkers in the area after getting stuck.

The trio, who were with two others on Jack’s Rake on Pavey Ark, became cragfast on the lower section of the grade-one scramble and called for help.

Langdale Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 1.50pm today and 15 members were involved in the operation.

A team spokesperson said: “Before we could get to them, other people in the area went to their assistance and got them off.

“A reported ankle injury proved to be very minor and didn’t stop the group from walking off the hill without any further assistance from us.”

In June last year, Howard Gladwyn, of Menston, West Yorkshire, and Susannah Cox of Lancaster both died in falls from the route in Great Langdale and the following month 13-year-old Tom Lister was seriously injured after falling 200ft on Jack’s Rake.
