A woman became separated from her walking partner and was subsequently reported missing. She was eventually located next day, having been accommodated near Esk Hause by a DofE from King Edward VI School, Stratford Upon Avon, having been safely accommodated in one of their tents overnight.

A competitor in a fell race took a tumble and sustained a suspected dislocated knee. He was treated by team members and evacuated by RAF Seaking. This was the first of four incidents, all running concurrently, that we dealt with.

A man was reported overdue after seperating from his walking companions at Esk Hause to take a different route back to Langdale. He was reported overdue when it went dark and he hadn't returned. It was known that he had no torch and would most likely have stopped moving at this point. A search was being organised when he turned up, having been aided by another walker who had found him and helped him down

A participant in a 24 peak charity challenge left his companions behind on the hill and came down to Langdale. He then went back looking for them and panicked when he couldn't find them. Instead of reporting to the organiser, who seemed to have things under control, he dialled 999. A quick check with the organiser revealed that all people were accounted for, although some were being assisted down from Esk Hause by event marshalls. We went home. Have you noticed how many plans work, until you put humans in, who just bugger them up?
