Scafell – Sat 25th Sep 2004 – Callout 38 in 2004 (limited)

Whitehaven Police paged the Team to respond to a report of lights seen on Scafell. The lights had remained static for around an hour. A limited callout was undertaken to investigate the lights and when a small group of six team members had eventually gathered at Gosforth the decision was made to stand down the team. The lights had stopped flashing and it was noted that there were many groups of Three Peakers out that night. The night was very mild with little wind so it was decided not to investigate further. This rescue was to be the first that would involve the new radios as the low band sets had already been replaced earlier the previous day.
