A major search was launched to find a group of 15 walkers missing on England’s highest mountain.

Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team was called out at 8.05pm yesterday after the group came off Scafell Pike and into upper Eskdale.

A detailed night-time search involving 27 team members was carried out on the Eskdale side of the mountain before the walkers were found near Burnmoor Tarn, west of Scafell.

Team members walked the party off the fell and down to Wasdale Head, with the rescue ending shortly before midnight.
