Stanley Ghyll, Eskdale

Following a mobile phone ‘999’ call, the team were called by the police to locate and rescue four walkers who had become benighted at the top of Stanley Ghyll, Eskdale. Due to the close proximity of the track to the stranded party, a limited call-out was organised and a small group of five team members were dispatched to help the walkers down. The rescue was completed relatively quickly and the rescue base closed by mid evening.

Incident started at 17:55.
