Mountain rescuers were deployed to help walkers who were lost during an evening walk.

11 members of the Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team (WMRT) were called out on May 18 at 7.56pm, after a call from the police was received.

Two walkers requested help as they were ‘lost and felt they could not make their way back to Borrowdale without any assistance’, a spokesperson from WMRT said.

“They were on the old Sty head path headed for Wasdale Head (on Scafell Pike).

“However, after a while they cancelled their request for help, seemingly having re-located themselves and moving back towards Sty Head,” they added.

The callout lasted 58 minutes.
