The Team were called out to search for a lady who had separated from her husband on a walk from Thirlspot to Wythbum. The Team did not find her but she turned up safely in Grasmere.
Footnote: A case of searching for someone before they were lost. Weather Conditions: Rain, Low Mist, Cool and Wet Underfoot.
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.
Having been called to this incident initially at 13:20, we handed it over to Keswick MRT since it was marginally in their area of operation, close to the 'border' between us.
