The walker was found near Hull Pot on her way up Pen-y-ghent

A walker attempting the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge had to be rescued when she got into difficulties.

The 32-year-old was approaching her final hill when she began to suffer mild hypothermia and dizziness.

The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation was called out about 6.15pm on Saturday to the lower slopes of Pen-y-ghent.

A CRO spokesperson said: “The team responded to a call, and located the casualty near Hull Pot. She was assessed by team casualty carers, and it became apparent that the walker had not eaten properly during the course of the day.

“She was placed in a casualty bag and rehydrated and fed, and returned in a team vehicle to Horton in Ribblesdale.”

The Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge involves summiting Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-ghent in a 37km (24-mile) circuit.
