Emergency walker finds own way off fells
Bookmark and Share
A man being sought by mountain rescue has managed to make his own way safely off the fells in Cumbria, it has been revealed.

Kirkby Stephen Mountain Rescue Team was looking for the individual, who had gone missing in the Howgill Fells while laying an aniseed trail for hounds on Tuesday (April 5th).

However, after a night in the open he managed to make his way down on the Tebay side of the range and met rescuers at Gaisgill on Wednesday morning.

Good waterproofs may have been beneficial to the individual, who was cold and wet having been on the hills in bad weather conditions, as might a walking GPS.

The Kirkby Stephen team had been joined by colleagues from Kendal, with the search having been called off for the night before the individual showed up.

Lying partly inside and partly outside the Yorkshire Dales national park, the Howgills include a number of loft summits, the highest being The Calf at 2,219 ft.
