A couple reported themselves having difficulty finding their way of what they thought to be Great Rigg. They were given some directions and advice that should have led them in to the Rydal valley. We then lost touch with them, but had a reliable sighting of them in the Brotherswater Inn(!) later that evening. We eventually established that they had found their way off, and were safe.

A couple phoned to say they were lost somewhere in the Great Rigg area. We were just organising a search, and finishing off dealing with the previous casualty, when they were found by people who did know where they where, and how to get down. They led them off. Just as well, because it was getting busy.
