A 17-year-old girl has been rescued after getting stuck in a bog near Whernside Tarns.

She was part of a Duke of Edinburgh's Award expedition when it happened on Tuesday.

Members of the Cave Rescue Organisation dug her out and she was airlifted to hospital by a Coastguard helicopter.

The rest of the party were escorted down to Ribblehead and handed over to the expedition organisers.
