Two walkers were rescued after getting lost in the Peak District.

Mountain rescue teams from Edale, Buxton, Glossop and Kinder were called out on Wednesday evening after becoming separated from a third person they were with, who raised the alarm as darkness fell.

A spokesman for Edale Mountain Rescue Team said the group had been separated around 3.30pm as they walked around Kinder Scout.

He said the walkers were eventually found ‘tired, wet and cold but otherwise safe and well’.
