A mountain biker has been rescued from a Lake District fell after suffering from hypothermia.
The casualty got into difficulty whilst riding on Dollywaggon Pike at approximately 2:45pm on Saturday. Members of the Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team, who were training with an RAF Seaking helicopter at the time, attended the scene.
The biker was airlifted to the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle for further treatment.
A married couple are recovering in hospital after falling 130 metres from Swirral Edge, Helvellyn in to Brown Cove.
Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team were called to the couples aid after another walker watched the man fall and then the woman shortly afterwards.
"Police received a second 999 call from the woman who had fallen; she had been trying to reach her husband who was the first casualty.
At the time of the incident a number Team members had just finished training and made their way by Landrover to Kepple Cove and then on foot to the scene of the incident. A RAF Sea King helicopter from RAF Boulmer in Northumberland was dispatched and the Great North Air Ambulance was requested."

Both casualties were taken by the RAF Sea King helicopter to the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle.
Locating missing walkers is a fairly regular occurrence for the region's mountain rescue teams but a new tool has been tested today that could make their job easier and help save lives.
Rescuers in Patterdale have been looking at a drone - an unmanned craft, developed at the University of Central Lancashire - it can scan a large area to search for missing hikers and allow people across the globe to help in rescue missions.
