MOUNTAIN rescuers from Duddon and Furness Mountain Rescue Team have been called out to help a pair of walkers off Scafell Pike.

The team is helping cover Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team's patch this weekend, as many of their team members have gone to Scotland for winter training - and within an hour of taking over they had a call out to the snowy mountain.

The incident took place yesterday afternoon.
