The weather wreaked havoc with the campsite of a group of DofE students. They requested help after all but two of their tents were destroyed. We attended their location and checked them all over, leaving them with heat blankets and instructions to stay put until daylight, when their leaders and supervisors would come and recover them.
We were requested by NWAS to assist a woman with a lower leg injury on the Coffin Route, near Grasmere. We attended along with the air ambulance and the woman was evacuated to hospital
An elderly male separated from his wife and subsequently benighted. She returned to their hotel and reported him missing.

A solo male phoned for help after becoming lost between Langdale and Grasmere. It proved very difficult to locate him, but eventually we worked out where he was. With some guidance by phone he was able to find a way down to Grasmere before it went dark. This was a little unfortunate, because he'd parked his car in Langdale. A smartphone, and the torch and a photo of a map from a book stored on the same phone don't constitute adequate navigation equipment.
A despondent male was reported as in danger in the Grasmere area. His car had been located by police, so acting on information provided by them, we searched a number of locations between Grasmere and Sergeant Man. He was located on the path coming down from Easedale Tarn. He was escorted the remainder of the way down and handed over to police for safekeeping.
