A pair of Mountain Rescue team members raising money for the charity by taking on Alfred Wainwright's Coast-to-Coast walk have complete their task.

The Twirlies on Tour challenge saw Rossendale and Pendle Mountain Rescue Team members Judy Whiteside and Gail Todd complete the 192-mile crossing of northern England from Cumbria's St Bees Head to Robin Hood Bay in North Yorkshire.

Commenting in her blog, Ms Whiteside - who edits Mountain Rescue Magazine - said she found it "strange" to face a day without lacing up her hiking boots after the trek and arranged a new walk back in the Lake District near Loweswater.

She also said she would do it again "for the fun of it", without the challenge of trying to raise cash and supporting this with tweets and blogs.

Those similarly keen to try the hike may note it passes through three national parks - the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors, although it stays away from the highest peaks, the loftiest point on the trail being the 2,172 ft summit of Nine Standards Rigg.
