Scafell Pike

Call form Workington Police regarding a 56yr old male long overdue on Scafell Pike. His wife was ringing from the Wasdale Head Hotel and was very concerned because he hadn’t been seen since 21.30 hrs. when he was just leaving the summit of the Pike. He did apparently have two torches and waterproofs etc. but had become separated from others in a Three Peaks challenge event. The Team Leader advised the lady to wait for a longer period of time, as it was likely he simply needed more time to sort out a navigational error. He turned up by 00.55 hrs. Not recorded as an official incident although still a ‘999’ call.

Incident started at 00:22.
