A couple and their dog were rescued after they got stuck while descending a Lake District fell.

Keswick Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 12.10pm on Thursday when the walkers called for help from Barf.

A team spokesperson said: “A small team was dispatched and made swift progress in locating the couple. They were then supported down to the safety of the road.”

The 1¼-hour rescue involved 10 volunteers from Keswick MRT.
