A hiker narrowly escaped death after getting lost while walking in a remote part of Cumbria’s Lake District.
The walker, relying on Google Maps on his phone for directions, called for help at around 6.30pm on Monday after getting into difficulty on the ridge between Scafell Pike and Great End.
But he wasn’t found until 2.30pm the next day and was hypothermic, having spent the night in close to freezing temperatures.
