Whilst the team were assembling for incident 24(a) Langdale Ambleside MRT (LAMRT) called the Wasdale team to assist with the search for a missing group of 14. Two walkers were known to be suffering ankle injuries but we believed the group was still together, albeit moving slowly. Contact had been lost but it was believed the group were coming down Mosedale. What LAMRT didn’t know was whether they had lights, or injuries needing stretchers. Two Wasdale team members found various members of the group in Eskdale and stayed long enough to confirm that all the group were off the hill. Some had minor ailments but were advised to self treat or seek medical attention. We turned the LAMRT vehicle around at Wrynos. The Wasdale incident was closed down around 10.30 p.m.. Around 12 team members were involved in this incident.

Incident started at 21:45 and ended at 22:30 making 0.8 hrs in total. There were 12 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 10
