Peter Roe, from Swaledale Mountain Rescue Team, said: “He had got lost for a couple of days in the mist on the moor then found his way to the road… He had a bit of a fall but had managed to deal with it himself and was absolutely fine.

“We could have been walking a few years from him and we wouldn’t have known – he’s a really nice chap.”
