A group of walkers had to be rescued after one of them was overcome by anxiety on a rocky ridge on Blencathra.

The party of four called for help from Hall’s Fell Ridge on the mountain while negotiating a tricky section of the route about 200m below the summit of the fell.

One of the walkers became worried about the exposure on the ridge.

Keswick Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 2pm on Saturday.

A team spokesperson said: “One of the party became very anxious about the exposure.

“Uninjured but unable to move, the group made the call requesting assistance. A team vehicle was dispatched and team members made their way up the ridge, located the group and guided them down past the main difficulties.”

The incident involved nine Keswick MRT volunteers and lasted a little more than 2¼ hours.
