Rescuers worked out the lost walkers were at Gaping Gill

Seven walkers tackling the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge were guided to safety after getting lost on the hillside.

The group of men and women aged between 22 and 52, called for help when they lost their way descending Ingleborough on Sunday.

The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation was called out about 8.40pm. After talking to the walkers the rescuers established they were at the Gaping Gill pothole on the south-eastern slopes of the fell.

A CRO spokesperson said: “Directions were given enabling the walkers to head to Trow Gill where they were met by a team vehicle and brought down to Clapham.”
