A man walking the Coast to Coast path was reported as having not arrived. We were requested by Patterdale MRT to search Kirkstone and Threshthwaite Mouth area. He was eventually located, having spent the night in different accommodation. A little puzzling?
A young man was running with two friends when he took a tumble in a disused quarry. He sustained a deep cut to his kneecap. The cut was treated by the Team Doctor, and he was evacuated from the quarry by stretcher. His friends were loaned spare warm clothing and escorted from the hillside at the same time.
A 12-year-old boy slipped and sustained a nasty gash to his leg in the Junior Guides race at Grasmere Sports. He was treated by team members and evacuated to a county ambulance. We were assisted by St John Ambulance, who were also attending the show.
