Wastwater Screes

Call from the police to investigate calls for help coming from the Screes. A lady walking in the vicinity of the Youth Hostel reported calls for help coming from high up on the Screes. A limited call out was initiated and 4 team members investigated the incident by walking along the Screes path from the Wastwater pump house whilst another scanned the slopes with a high powered telescope. Nothing was seen or heard and as this type of report has occurred in the past the incident was stood down shortly after. Well intentioned false alarm.

Incident started at 14:37. There were 4 Wasdale team members involved.
