An informant at Wasdale National Trust campsite reported seeing flashing lights on the Scafells. Leaders investigated the sightings but stood the incident down at 00.12 a.m. It became clear that the lights were unlikely to be a distress signal and were likely to be people walking off the hill in the dark. Well intentioned false alarm. Two team members involved but no fell going action necessary.
Incident started at 23:41.
