An injured walker was rescued from England’s highest mountain after getting lost in the dark.

Two mountain rescue teams were involved overnight in a major search for the woman, who was alone on Scafell Pike.

The Wasdale team was joined by colleagues from Duddon and Furness Mountain Rescue Team in an operation lasting more than six hours on the 978m (3,209ft) mountain.

The rescuers were called out at 10.30pm last night after reports the woman had fallen and was lost.

A Wasdale MRT spokesperson said: “The female was located at 1.55am on very serious ground near to Middleboot Knotts. She was treated for a minor head injury and carried from the mountain back towards Wasdale.”
