A walker was rescued from a Lake District fell after fainting in warm weather.

The 58-year-old was ascending Cat Bells when he collapsed.

Keswick Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 11.35am on Wednesday and five volunteers responded in the team’s Land Rover, with another three following in another vehicle.

The first team members assessed the casualty before a Keswick MRT paramedic carried out more thorough checks.

A team spokesperson said: “The man was able to walk himself off the hill with assistance and was met at the road by an ambulance crew and transferred to hospital.”

Thirteen team volunteers were involved in the rescue, which lasted just over 1½ hours.
