Call from Cumbria police regarding a 67 yr old male reported long overdue on a walk up Great Gable. He was reported to have gone with little or no fell going equipment, map, compass, clothing, food, so was sounding like someone the team leader considered was “at risk”. However, as the team leader was gathering full details from the police they received another call from the informant to advise that he had rung home and was on his way. The incident was stood down within minutes and only involved the team leader making telephone calls.
Incident started at 20:52.
