Scafell Pike – Sat 28th Aug 2010 – Alert

Call to the team from the police for advice on reported flashing lights on Scafell Pike. The Deputy Leader investigated the lights which were did not give cause for concern. The incident was closed shortly after the report with no further action necessary. The team occasionally is called out for either bright stars on the horizon which appear to be flashing or climbers/walkers descending late at night. Unless the flashes are regular, a definite call for help (6 flashes) or respond to flashes from the valley bottom, they are regarded as well intentioned false alarms worthy of investigation but not for an emergency response on the fell itself.

Incident Type
Location Scafell Pike

Incident started at 23:52.
