Search for American walkers lost on fell

photoTwo Coast to Coast walkers from the USA became lost between Haystacks and Honister last night.

They contacted their accommodation by mobile phone who in turn reported them lost.

Cockermouth Mountain Rescue Team were called to search for the pair at 9:23pm last night, Wednesday 3 September.

A spokesman for Cockermouth MRT said: “They were located by team members, from GPS co-ordinates from their tablet device and by identifying their lights on the hill.

“They were then walked to a team vehicle and driven to their accommodation.”

29 members from Cockermouth MRT attended.
