A MOUNTAIN Rescue team came to the aid of a walker and his dog. 

The walker was injured and as a result of this, he couldn't descend from the mountain. 

A spokesperson from Wasdale MRT said: "A call was received from Cumbria Police about a lone male walker and his dog. The walker had suffered an ankle injury on the descent, was unable to walk, and getting cold.

"He had been able to report via iPhone satellite emergency call. His location was about halfway up towards Wind Gap.

"The team leader made a full callout, with the first vehicle away quickly as members were already in base.

"Happily, shortly after leaving the vehicle at Wasdale Head a single head torch was seen. It was confirmed that this was the casualty, and he had managed a slow walk off the fell after all.

"After a quick assessment, the party all made their way back to Wasdale Head and the team stood down."
