Two walkers were rescued after getting lost on the Lake District fells.

The man in his 30s and woman in her 20s called for help on Sunday when they became disoriented after climbing the Old Man of Coniston.

Coniston Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 6.30pm and 12 members were joined by a search dog in the operation to find the walkers in poor weather.

A team spokesperson said: “They were found at around 8.35pm, cold and wet but uninjured between Goat’s Hawse and Seathwaite Tarn in the Duddon Valley.

“They were given warm clothing and walked down to the dam at Seathwaite Tarn, from where they were driven back round to Coniston by colleagues from Duddon and Furness Mountain Rescue Team.”
