Rescuers have found two walkers who had been reported to be "lost and exhausted" in the Cairngorm mountains.

Cairngorm mountain rescue team said the pair had been out for a few days and had been "hammered" by poor weather.

Glenmore Lodge MRT has also joined the search on Cairngorm plateau.

Shortly after 19:30, Cairngorm MRT said the pair had been located and were being walked off the hill. It said there were "no concerns on their condition".
