Two walkers were treated for hypothermia after being rescued from a Lake District fell.

The pair got lost between Stony Cove Pike and High Street on Tuesday afternoon and reported themselves very cold and wet.

Police alerted Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team, who contacted the walkers and managed to get a fix on their location.

Rescuers made their way to Pasture Bottom in two of their Land Rover ambulances, from where they walked to the pair’s location near Threshthwaite Mouth.

A Patterdale MRT spokesperson said: “Team members made their way to the stricken couple and escorted them off the fell.

“The couple once back at the rescue base were treated for hypothermia by the team’s medics.”

The team pointed fell-goers to the Adventure Smart website which, it said, had some very helpful information for walkers to access before setting off.

The three-hour rescue involved 10 team volunteers.
