We were called by our colleagues in Keswick and Cockermouth Teams to support a search for a missing fell runner who was attempting around 1/2 the Bob Graham Round route and was last seen in the Scoat Fell Area. Despite a massive search involving all 3 teams the missing runner was not found during Tuesday night. The search resumed on the Wednesday morning with additional teams from elsewhere in the Lakes attending. The runner was located around the summit of Brandreth. He was taken to hospital in a Coastguard helicopter but was declared deceased after arrival. Ours thoughts are with the runners family and friends.

Incident started at 18:30. There were 24 Wasdale team members involved.
