Rescuers went to the aid of three people who were stranded on a Lake District fell after their tent blew over.

The two adults and a child had been camping on Hallin Fell near Howtown when they got into difficulties and were unable to make their way down from the hill because of bad visibility.

Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was called out at 2.30am on Saturday and four of its volunteers made their way on to the fell and found the group near the summit trig point.

They were escorted to safety by rescuers and made their way back to their car.

The 2½-hour rescue involved five Patterdale MRT members.
