Incident Report #105 2004

We were called to attend a woman with an ankle injury. She was walking with her husband. They had passed a grid reference to the Police which put them on Nanny Lane, Troutbeck. The team was dispatched to sort her out. Our first response group couldn't find them. We spoke them again and they admitted that they might not have been quite were they had initially told us. Further questioning located them on the Ambleside side of Wansfell. A second team was dispatched, they were located, and the woman's injury was treated. Grid references and numbers are such a tricky business. Sometimes one number out puts you one metre away, and sometimes it puts you one kilometre away. We'd prefer the one metre!
