Rescuers went to the aid of two walkers who got lost on the flanks of one of Yorkshire’s Three Peaks.

The Cave Rescue Organisation was alerted by police after a woman reported herself lost in poor weather on Pen-y-ghent Side on the north-west slopes of the 694m (2,277ft) hill on Sunday.

Team members were called out about 11.40am.

A spokesperson said the woman had set out to climb Pen-y-ghent with another person, but they became ‘misplaced’ in bad visibility.

“Despite a poor signal, the police control staff were able to get a location for the caller before losing the call,” the spokesperson said.

“A small team was dispatched to locate the walker, and as they approached the reported position, they came across her, with a companion, making their way towards Hull Pot.

“They were none the worse for their experience, and were escorted back to their car at Horton in Ribblesdale.”
