Incident Report #6 1983

Many people reported the sighting of a red flare. The Team, having just completed rescue no. 5 turned out again. As most of the high crags were still under winter conditions all essential rescue gear was deployed. The Team reached Stickle Tarn and found a 'bored' couple setting off flares, not knowing the consequences. Escorted off the fell and dealt with by the local police officers.
