Man dies after 300ft fells plunge
A walker has died after falling about 320ft (100m) in the Lake District, police have said.
The man, who was in his 60s, was one of a group out walking in icy conditions near Pavey Ark, north of Windermere, on Wednesday afternoon.
The Langdale and Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team and an RAF helicopter were called after reports the walker had suffered serious injuries.
The man later died in the West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven.
A spokesman for the rescue team said it appeared all the walkers were having problems in the difficult conditions on the fells, which have been hit by heavy snowfalls.
