The four walkers were rescued from the Sulber 'crossroads'

A group of walkers attempting the Yorkshire Three Peaks was rescued after one of them was unable to carry on after suffering an injury.

The three women and a 12-year-old boy called for help on Sunday evening and the Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation went to their aid on the slopes of Ingleborough after being called out about 8.45pm.

One of the party, whose adults were aged between 28 and 33, pulled a muscle while tackling the 39km (24-mile) route linking Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in the Yorkshire Dales.

A CRO spokesperson said: “They gave a description of where they were which was then confirmed by Sarloc, the mountain rescue GPS smartphone software.

“A team vehicle was able to drive to their location at the Sulber ‘crossroads’ and bring them off the hill and down to Horton in Ribblesdale.”
