Call form the Police regarding a party of 5 males (all in their 20’s) reported long overdue on the 3 peaks. The informant had dropped them in Wasdale and driven round to Langdale to pick them up, leaving them 4 hours to complete their route – Sty Head, Esk Hawse, Summit. Return via Esk Hawse and Rossett Gill. The team leader advised that 4 hours was unrealistic and more time would be needed to complete that round. Nothing more was heard and no further action was taken. Recorded here for general awareness but not as an official statistic.

Incident started at 09:00.
