A Cumbrian mountain rescue team has battled snowy conditions as part of its annual training event in Scotland. 

Wasdale Mountain Rescue travelled to Cairngorms National Park in Scotland earlier this month for the team's annual winter skills training.

There, they would spend three days cultivating their mountain rescue skills in extremely cold conditions.

Day one involved classic winter skills including the efficient and safe use of axe and crampons, sliding and self arrest, winter belaying and basic ropework, avalanche forecasting and predicting snow conditions.
