Two walkers attempting the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge were caught out by the end of British summer time.

The women, aged 22 and 24, called for help after they got lost in the dark on the top of Ingleborough on Sunday.

The Cave Rescue Organisation was alerted at 8.35pm when the pair reported themselves benighted at the summit shelter and unable to make their descent.

A team spokesperson said: “They had begun the walk at 8am, overlooking the effects of the clock change on daylight.

“One team member ran up to the summit from Newby Cote and met the pair, while team vehicles took others up to Crina Bottom.

“The pair were guided down to the vehicles, offered hot drinks and returned, unharmed, to their own car, parked in Horton in Ribblesdale.”
