A ‘999’ call came in from a worried parent regarding three 20 year old male walkers who had phoned home to say they were struggling coming down the mountain. They had been on Scafell Pike. They had reported to another parent that they could see a Tarn and were heading for it. Following a number of telephone calls to the informants, the team Leader decided to wait a further 2 hours before taking action. The missing walkers turned up safe and well at 4.48 p.m. and the incident was closed. This incident is recorded here for information only and not logged as a formal incident.
