BODIES FOUND ON LAKE DISTRICT MOUNTAIN
The bodies of two men have been found
on a mountain in the Lake District.
The men, both in their 20s, were
spotted by an RAF rescue helicopter
near the summit of Helvellyn.
It is thought the men fell from
Striding Edge, a high ridge which is
normally safe but can become dangerous
in wet weather.
A spokesman for Cumbria police said one
of the dead was from Essex and the
other from the North East of England.
