The Donegal Mountain Rescue Team were called on to assist walkers on the Muckish mountains, Co Donegal this evening.

The rescue team were called at around 5pm to assist walkers stuck on steep terrain.

A search dog located the walkers and the area is being assessed for the safest extraction for all involved.

This evening a spokesperson for DMRT said the walkers were located and safely lowered from crag.

"Low cloud and bad ground made for a challenging extraction. All team members and walkers safely off hill.  All DMRT volunteers are down and heading home."
