Six veterans are climbing England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike, as part of their 1,000 mile expedition from Scotland to London.
The Walk of Britain group is made up of veterans who have either physical or cognitive injuries from their time serving on the front line.
They will be met by Cumbrian mountaineer Sir Chris Bonington following their climb.
A woman has been airlifted to hospital after falling on England's highest mountain.
Members of Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team were called to Lingmell Coll on Scafell Pike yesterday evening to help the casualty who'd broken her ankle.
The rescue was the first carried out in the Lake District by a Sikorsky helicopter which is replacing the RAF Sea Kings.
A charity that took in a dog found on England's highest peak say the case highlights the need for microchipping.
The Scottish SPCA had to appeal for the dog's owner to come forward after he was discovered on Scafell Pike, because he was not microchipped.
A week later and the dog has now returned home, after spending time at an animal welfare and rehoming centre in Glasgow.
Centre assistant manager Katrina Cavanagh said:
An appeal to find a dog that went missing in the Lake District has gone viral.
Owner Adam Nolan, from Whitehaven, put out the appeal after losing his Border Collie 'Jasper' at Cam Spout Crag below Scafell Pike on 2nd November.
"I know people may say 'he's just a dog'," says Adam on Facebook, "but to me he leaves the same void as if I were to lose someone very close to me."
His appeal on Facebook has had over 60,000 people sharing the link. On Twitter hundreds of people are also offering their support.
There's been another rescue in the Lake District this time a family and a dog were brought down from the side of Scafell.
Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team were called just after 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon after a family of four from Lincolnshire and their Labrador got into difficulties.
The family were eventually lowered down an 8 metre drop to safety. The dog was wrapped in a net before it too was helped down.
This footage was captured by the mountain rescue team.
Scaling Scafell Pike is tough at the best of times, but two national hockey coaches took the challenge to the extreme when they make it to the top while dribbling golf balls.
