Two people reported themselves in difficulty on Steel Fell. They were disorientated by the mist and were unable to find their way off. Attempts to talk them down failed. A search was organised and they were quickly located and escorted off.
This 57-year-old man slipped and sustained a suspected ankle fracture. He was taking photographs of low flying planes when the accident occurred. We don't have a category of accident called 'photography' and it's unlikely we'll start one either!
A16 year old youth, who's friend had fallen and broken his leg walked down to Grasmere to raise the alarm. He could not read a map and had no idea where the casualty was on the fell. A helicopter from RAF Boulmer was called to assist and eventually found casualty at Far Easedale,
A party of four phoned and reported themselves stuck on Steel Fell, unable to locate a way down. For some reason intermittent views of the road, through the clouds, were not enough to coax them down, so we had to go and do it the hard way.
