Four cavers were rescued after becoming trapped underground by rising water in King Pot, near Ingleton.

Clapham’s Cave Rescue Organisation was called out at around 4am on Monday and found the group sheltering having been cut off following heavy rain.

All four were helped to the surface by 2.10pm after a ten-hour operation.
