The walker became exhausted on the Pennine Way at Clough Edge, Torside Clough

A walker was rescued from the Pennine Way in the Peak District after succumbing to dehydration and fatigue.

Glossop Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 10.15pm on Monday when the 38-year-old man got into difficulties on Clough Edge above Torside Clough.

Team members gave the man fluids then walked him the short distance to one of its 4×4 ambulances which was at Glossop Low shooting cabins above the path, on the northern side of the Bleaklow plateau.

The 50-minute rescue involved 11 volunteer team members.
