Four people left Langdale to walk to Scafell and back; at Esk Hause one lady said she was tired: the other three said they would carry on and return for her later. They did so, however, she could not be found. A helicopter from RAF Boulmer with team members on board located her at Esk Hause at 10.00 pm in the exact spot they left her. This woman should never have been left on her own due to her medical history. The team leader gave the rest of the group a severe talking too. Keswick, Furness and SARDA rescue teams were ail alerted.
