Incident Report #64 2019

Two women reported themselves benighted. We located them and escorted back to civilisation. 

We were assisted by Kendal MRT on this one, being short of members ourselves due to a prior engagement in Langdale.

For clarity's sake, it's unlikely we'd recommend Burberry macs, Sketchers trainers or Gucci bags  for Lakes hillwalking

Incident Report #58 2019

A man sustained a serious ankle fracture/dislocation. He was treated by team members, but the need for ongoing manual traction applied to the ankle in order to maintain the blood supply to his foot meant that a stretcher evacuation was not the best option. A Coastguard helicopter was requested and was able to attend and winch the man and fly him to hospital
