The man was walking near the derelict shooting hut above Sulber

A walker was airlifted from the slopes of one of Yorkshire’s Three Peaks after collapsing.

The 42-year-old man was tackling the 39km (24-mile) challenge walk today when he suffered medical problems descending Ingleborough.

The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation was called out about 5.35pm and an air ambulance also flew to the scene close to the derelict shooting hut at The Allotment on the mountain’s eastern flanks.

A team spokesperson said: “Following treatment by paramedics the casualty was evacuated to hospital by helicopter just prior to team members arriving on scene.”
