A UK rescue team urged hill climbers to look up the weather forecast after two hikers had trouble camping within the Lake District.

Patterdale Mountain Rescue was notified by the police at 8:25 pm on Saturday when the campers called for assistance.

The two hikers set their camp in Grisedale Tarn.

A spokesperson for the rescue team stated: “Due to the weather conditions, the tent had collapsed in the winds because the poles snapped.”

“The couple then quickly became wet and cold and requested the team’s help.”

“The duty leader decided on a limited callout after establishing there were no injuries.”

“Under guidance, the couple began to make their way down to the valley bottom. Four team members drove up the Grisedale valley in two Land Rovers as far as they were able. They then made their way on foot to meet up with the two walkers.”

The two were then transported back to the base and made their way to their car, situated near Ambleside.

The spokesperson said: “The team would like to remind anyone who is venturing on the fells to check the weather conditions and plan accordingly.”

Four Patterdale MRT volunteers were involved in the incident that lasted two hours.
