Walkers worried about a soaking wet 11-year-old boy called out Keswick Mountain Rescue Team.

A group of walkers set out hoping to walk from Thelkeld over the Dodds and along the ridge towards Helvellyn on Saturday.

They were aiming to camp near Red Tarn but were caught in bad weather and got soaked.

A boy, 11, got particularly cold and as they found it difficult to warm him up got concerned about his well being.

Whilst help was being requested just after 5pm the group decided to pitch tents on the side of Stybarrow Dodd and got the boy out of wet clothes and into two sleeping bags with some warm food.

By the time Keswick MRT arrived he had warmed up and with some dry clothes was able to walk down with the team from Sticks Pass down to Stanah.

A total of 17 team members were involved in the incident which lasted just over four hours.
