Missing Lake District walkers safe and well

A search for two walkers missing in the Lake District has ended after the pair made their own way to safety.

The two men set out from Great Langdale to walk to Scafell Pike on Thursday, but called emergency services several hours later to say they were lost.

Five mountain rescue teams searched throughout the night and were joined by police and an RAF helicopter on Friday.

Cumbria Police said the men, from the Merseyside area, had now been accounted for and the search called off.
