A MOUNTAIN rescue team came to the aid of a man who was "unable to move" following a panic attack.

Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team assisted a distressed man and his partner on Tuesday evening who called for help on Hallin Fell in Ullswater.

The team responded and spoke to the informant over the phone and managed to obtain an exact location through the use of her smart phone.

The pair were instructed to stay where they were until four members of the team arrived and escorted them down the hill safely.
