The two walkers were found at the Sulber 'crossroads'

Two walkers had to be rescued after they got lost while attempting the Yorkshire Three Peaks.

The women, aged 47 and 54, called for help after losing their way coming down Ingleborough, towards Horton in Ribblesdale.

The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation was called out about 9.50pm yesterday.

A team spokesperson said: “After obtaining further details from them a CRO team drove up to the Sulber ‘crossroads’ area while another team set off on foot from Horton.

“The lost walkers were quickly located, cold and frightened, at the Sulber finger post, and brought down off the hill by CRO vehicle.”

The Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge involves a 39km (24-mile) route taking in the summits of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough.
