Incident Report #18 2012

A couple became disorientated on the ridge between Calf Crag and Gibson Knott after what was probably an over-ambitious walk from Buttermere. They were given directions and advice, but still made very slow progress. A team vehicle was dispatched to provide a blue light to aim for in the valley and a team member walked up to meet them, and assist with luggage!

Incident Report #87 2011

An experieniced and well-equipped walker (he asked me to point that out, since he was rather embarrassed at finding himself in need of our helped) slipped and sustained a lower leg injury. He was treated by team members and evacuated to Ambleside for onward transport to hospital by ambulance.
