A 16-year-old male celebrated finishng his exams by cycling off-road, from Penrith to Eskdale. He ground to a halt near Three Tarns when he ran out of daylight. His position was confirmed using SARLOC and he was recovered by a group of team members. You have to admire his ambition, even if the implementation was a little flawed... 

Lights and some spare, warm clothing would have helped...

The team was called to assist a mountain biker who had fallen off their bike. The grid reference and physical description placed the incident on the Coffin Route behind Nab Cottage. We were unable to locate the casualty in this location, and where then informed that ambualnce paramedics had located the casualty on the other side of the road and lake, and that they were able to walk down with some assistance. It remains a mystery how this confusion about the loctaion arose and it's fortunate that injuries were not more serious...
