A man was reported to have sustained head injuries when he fell near Easedale Tarn. The team were just mobilising when we received a second call saying he was OK. We went no further. Probably just a s well, because the grid reference passed put the location in the valley floor in Langdale!
A man was reported suffering form chest and stomach pains on the lower slopes of Silver How. The caller hadn't managed to pass a very accurate location, because the signal dropped out, but this was resolved when the attending air ambulance spotted them. The man was treated and evacuated to hospital. Kendal MRT were on route to help, but were not required in the end. This was just as well, because in true MR fashion, stuff was kickin' off elsewhere..
Not long returned from the previous incident when we had to return to pretty much the same spot to rescue a woman who had suffered an injury to her hip when she fell. She was treated by team members and evacuated to the valley with help from Kendal MRT

What sounded like shouts for help where heard in the Helm Crag area. The team was dispatched to investigate, but were unable to locate anyone in difficulty. After a thorough search of the area we stood down. This was a false alarm with good intent, but the initial shouts were possibly of mischievous origin... Kendal MRT were called to assist, but were stood down while on route.
We were requested to assist Patterale MRT when a man was reported approximately 24 hours overdue at a rendesvous. Various areas where searched and the man turned up at his meeting point, but later than expected.
