We were called by Cumbria Police about a group of three walkers who
were benighted in the far reaches of our area. As the party were intending to descend to Langdale and also as Langdale Ambleside MRT have the quicker journey to this destination from their side the job was passed to them with agreement and our thanks. They successfully found the walkers and escorted them back to safety in harsh weather conditions.
