Four walkers were flown to hospital on Saturday after falling on icy conditions in the Lake District.
Members of the Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team first assisted a father and son who had slipped down an icy path on Helvellyn.
Shortly afterwards the team was called to a 27-year-old man who had broken his ankle and dislocated his shoulder on the same mountain.
Rescuers were then diverted to help a 47-year-old who fell on St Sunday Crag.
