A walker was found safe and well after a major search involving three Lake District rescue teams.

The 83-year-old was reported overdue after embarking on a long trip over Yewbarrow, Red Pike, Scoat Fell, Haycock and Seatallan.

Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team was called out early on Thursday and enlisted the help of colleagues from the Cockermouth and Duddon and Furness teams as the search area was so large.

Lake District Mountain Rescue Search Dogs members also joined the operation to find the man.

A spokesperson for the Wasdale team said: “The walker was found safe and well between Seatallan and Greendale Tarn by a Keswick dog handler then walked back to Greendale by Duddon members.”
