Lost walkers guided off Helvellyn


Keswick Mountain Rescue Team have been in action, guiding a group of walkers down off Helvellyn after they had become lost. A spokesperson from KMRT said:

"A team of three men were descending from Helvellyn when they found themselves away from the path and on steep ground with daylight fading. Unsure of the way off the mountain and before they lead themselves into danger they called 999 and asked for Mountain Rescue help.

"Using phone finder the three men were located on Willie Wife Moor below Dollywagon Pike. They were given directions for the safest route down towards the road whilst a small team was sent to assist them in case they had difficulties.

"The team members found the three as they were descending towards the road at Dunmail Raise. Another team vehicle was sent out to take the three very grateful men back to their car at Swirls.

"A reminder to all that daylight hours are limited at this time of year and if you venture onto the fells you should be suitably equipped with at least a torch, a map and compass – and the knowledge to use them."
