A man has been killed in a 650ft (200m) fall down a mountain in the Lake District.
The 24-year-old had been walking with a companion on Striding Edge on Helvellyn when he lost his footing and fell down the mountain.
A Sea King helicopter was scrambled as part of the mission to rescue him.
However, a team from Patterdale Mountain Rescue and paramedics eventually recovered his body from Nethermost Cove.
