Flashing lights were reported in area of White Ghyll/Scout Crag. We investigated, and although we saw the lights, they were not flashing a recognised distress signal, nor responding to our attempts to communicate, so we went home. We did see shooting stars, a satellite, and with Lancaster Universities aurora alert showing high activity there was a possibility of Northern Lights being spotted. The aurora proved as elusive as the source of the flashing lights so we went home
Flashing lights and shouts for help were reported from a Langdale pub. An investigation found only the possibility of a farmer recovering his dog or similar. A false alarm with good intent.
Flashing lights were reported in the Raven Crag area of Gt Langdale. A check found two people, high on the crag and a shouted conversation confirmed that they didn't need any help
People leaving the New Dungeon Ghyll hotel observed flashing lights from the valley. When team members arrived, they also saw them. When they arrived on the summit to investigate, they found approximately eight people scattered around the few flat bits sleeping peacefully. They denied any part in any flashing light type antics, but there seemed little likelihood that anyone else was involved.
The manager from the ODG reported constant flashing lights on thcfcllside. A small party with search dogs found the problem on Pike Howe. A fire, that had been smouldering on a path had 'f!ared-up'. Path repair gang working nearby during the day.
