A walker has died after collapsing on a Lake District fell.

The man was with his wife and their son on Ullock Pike on New Year’s Eve when the incident happened.

The son began cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the emergency services were alerted. The Great North Air Ambulance Service’s helicopter flew to the site, landing close by, and Keswick Mountain Rescue Team was alerted about 1.35pm.

A team spokesperson said: “Sadly, despite the best efforts of the medical team the man could not be saved.

“Our thoughts and sympathies are with the man’s family and friends.”

The incident involved 20 Keswick MRT volunteers for almost 2½ hours.
