The caver was flown to Bullpot Farm

A caver collapsed and died while walking to a route in the western Dales.

The 58-year-old was on his way to Top Sink in the Ease Gill system on Casterton Fell today when the incident happened.

The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation was called out about 12.30pm and the Great North Air Ambulance flew to the scene, east of Casterton, 2km beyond the western boundary of the Yorkshire Dales national park.

Team members carried the man a short distance to the helicopter and he was flown to Bull Pot Farm, but pronounced dead.
