A man has died after collapsing during a walk near Whitby.

Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were contacted yesterday at 1.15pm by the Yorkshire Ambulance Service about a collapsed walker.

The man had met up with a walking group near Whitby and joined them for a walk in Westerdale.

The group quickly called the emergency services and gave first aid.

The Yorkshire Air Ambulance Service also attended, but the gentlemen did not recover.

North Yorkshire Police were at the scene too. 

Team members assisted YAS to move the man and helped some of the group get to their next destination.

2 Rovers and 12 team members were involved for around two and a half hours.

CMRT members extend their sincere condolences to his family and friends.
