Two missing walkers were rescued by mountain rescue teams after being found by a search dog and her handler.

The two men were visiting the Lake District to climb Scafell Pike. When they failed to return home worried relatives alerted mountain rescuers.

The pair, aged 19 and 21 were discovered by Isla and her handler close to Skew Gill.

They were not injured but cold and lost.

They were airlifted down to Seathwaite so they could pick up their vehicle.

"Hill goers should be aware that full winter conditions apply on the hill, with some patches of deep snow, and should plan accordingly, allowing plenty of daylight for their activities."
