Rescuers were called after reports of two teenagers tripping on a Lake District fell.

Keswick Mountain Rescue Team’s help was requested for two 18-year-olds who needed assistance descending to the road from Cat Bells.

The pair were reportedly under the influence of magic mushrooms.

The team was alerted about 10pm on Monday.

A team spokesperson said: “Fortunately they were uninjured and so only a small team was needed to walk them off.”

Five team volunteers were involved in the incident for 1½ hours.

The following day, Keswick MRT was called out about 8.45pm to aid a mountain biker who fell while riding on a bridleway on the side of Ullock Pike, 200m above the Ravenstone Hotel.

The spokesperson said: “He had sustained cuts, was badly winded, had a suspected back injury, and was unable to move.

“Two vehicles were dispatched and once the casualty was found treatment including pain relief was provided.

“The man was packaged and then stretchered down to the road to an ambulance.”

The 1½-hour incident involved 20 team members.
