Norwegian rescue services have found two German women, aged 22 and 25, who got lost in the Setesdal region of southern Norway twice in 48 hours, after shunning compass and map to set out on well-marked routes that they nonetheless strayed from.

The errant duo did not make it to an assembly point that they had agreed upon with their larger group of hill walkers on Wednesday evening. 

Forced to await daylight, by 5am on Thursday the Red Cross had sent off staff into the mountains to find them while two helicopters took off to help to search for them.
The local Agder police district said they made contact with the women at a cabin in Sirdalsheiene during the afternoon.
