Call from Workington Police regarding a party of two, long overdue on Scafell Pike and doing the Three Peaks challenge. Last seen at Mickledore at 0200 hrs but reported to be reasonably well equipped. The Team Leader advised the informant to wait until later in morning before getting too concerned. They turned up safe and well at 0610 hrs. Coupled with the number of calls relating to the previous event, the overall effect was one very disturbed night for the Team Leader. One of the perks of the job ………… Not recorded as an official incident although still a ‘999’ call.
Incident started at 05:10 and ended at 06:10 making 1 hrs in total.
