Teams were dispatched into Greenup Ghyll, Wythburn and Far Easedale. They were located by Keswick team members near Lining Crag and assisted off.

Incident Report #22 1996

At last something different! Not even in our area! A young man collapsed with severe abdominal pain and hypothermia. Because it was a Grasmere phone number reporting this incident it went through to Kendal Police Control, who paged us. It is actually in Keswick MRT's area. We attended, and found the other classic case we come up against: the "child crushing rucsac". We removed the rucsac and retrieved the boy and took him to hospital. There endeth another D. of E. Gold Expedition.

Incident Report #2 2001

We were requested to assist Police with finding a man who was descending from Hellvellyn, having fallen down Nethermost Cove. His fall was witnessed by people in the area and reported to Patterdale MRT. He had assured witnesses that he was OK, but the Police needed to know he was off the hill, safely. We located him near Swirls car park, safe and well.
