The Team received reports of 'flashing lights' on the Band. Upon investigation it turned out to be a group of 5 people benighted because they weren't carrying torches. The 'flashing light' was an electronic camera flash. Rescue teams could well do without this sort of incident; if people carried torches or got themselves off the hill before dark there would be no problem.
