Woman dies in Lake District fall

A woman has fallen to her death in a fall from a popular Lakeland scrambling route.

Susana Cox, 37, is the second person to die on Jack’s Rake, Pavey Ark, Great Langdale in the past week.

An air ambulance together with the Langdale and Ambleside and Kendal Mountain Rescue Teams were called out yesterday afternoon to help Ms Cox from Lancaster. She was treated at the scene but later pronounced dead.

A Cumbria police spokesman said: “There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death and the case will be passed to the coroner.”

The tragedy comes just days after Howard Gladwyn, 48, from Menston, Ilkley, died after plunging hundreds of feet from Jack’s Rake last Friday.
