Rescuers in the Yorkshire Dales were called out on Boxing Day to aid a walker lost on Ingleborough.

The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation said the incident was ‘avoidable’.

The team was alerted shortly before 6pm on Wednesday when the 52-year-old man, who had a dog with him, called for help as he was ‘lost in fog and pitch black’ near the cross shelter on the summit of the fell.

A team spokesperson said: “He was escorted down to a team vehicle, near Crina Bottom, to be brought off the hill.”

It was the volunteer team’s 70th incident of the year.
