Walkers warned to precautions when fell walking

Four walkers have been rescued after being stuck overnight on a Lake District mountain amid strong winds and heavy rain.

The four were lost on the fell for nearly 24 hours before being found by mountain rescue volunteers this morning.

It comes as much of the region is battered by bad weather, Hannah McNulty reports from the base of Scafell.
