Call from Workington Police regarding a man lost on Scafell Pike. The Team Leader spoke to him by mobile phone (between repeatedly being cut off with poor reception). Established which valley he’d set off from and what route he’d taken so far and that he appeared to be overlooking Eskdale. He’d become separated from others in his group whist doing a 3 peaks challenge event. He could see other walkers in the distance so agreed to walk that way. 15 minutes later he rang to confirm he had met others and would be alright walking back down.
Incident started at 10:35.
