Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team has issued a reminder to the public that conditions on the fells can still be wintry despite it now being April.

While he was eventually able to free himself , Patterdale MRT have since stressed that sheet ice, sleet, snow, and very strong winds can still cause tough conditions for those walking on the fells.
