A walker injured his ankle. He was unable to raise the alarm due to lack of mobile signal so his friend went to the nearest farmhouse for help. The team was responding when we were contacted to say that the man had been assisted from the hill by other people and was now in his car.
Two people with dogs reported themselves cragfast in a gully between Crinkle Crags and Bowfell. We set off to locate and rescue them, which is what would have happened if this is where they were. They had actually misidentified Pike O'Blisco and misreported their location, so managed to extract themselves while we were looking in the wrong place
A 51-year-old female suffered a lower leg injury. She attempted to self-evacuate but eventually had accepted an offer to call for assistance. She was treated and evacuated by team members
A woman was reported as struggling down from Red Tarn towards Oxendale. She was insistant that she needed no help, but there was concern about the progress she was making, so a team member went to check. She was located in Oxendale, hobbling badly. She was recovered in a farm vehicle. SHe subsequently contacted us, thanking us and the farmers for helping, and reported that, on X-ray, the ankle was fractured.. A stirling effort to get so far aided only by her husband!
A group of 4 became split up when one managed to cross a stream that the others weren't able to. They had only gone for a 'short walk' because of the weather! They had no torches, so had to stop moving once it went dark. They were eventually located at 03.15 by Kendal MRT members who had come to assist after we had been out in atrocious conditions for 4 hours. The evacuation was made difficult by the speed and volume of water flowing.
