TWO mountain rescue teams joined forces to rescue a lost walker near a steep Lake District ridge.

Duddon and Furness Mountain Rescue Team received a callout from a female walker who had become disorientated after losing her map on Great Carrs, in Little Langdale.

DFMRT called colleagues at Coniston Mountain Rescue Team for help due to the location lying in between their respective patches.

The teams fixed her position using the phonefinder app as being close to the aircraft crash memorial near the summit of Great Carrs so both dispatched parties from their sides.

Coniston deployed three members up from Three Shire Stone on Wrynose Pass, and had the shorter walk up so arrived with the casualty first. 

She was given warm clothing, escorted down to the CMRT vehicle, and driven back to her car at the Walna Scar car park.

Six volunteers from each team attended for over four hours.
