Team called this evening for a combination of shouts heard in the Brotherikeld area and 2 walkers reported overdue from a walk. Team members went to the area to see if they could hear the shouts or spot the walkers and in the end the walkers returned safe & well and the shouts, which were probably unrelated stopped. Incident stood down as a well intentioned false alarm.
Incident started at 18:03 and ended at 19:45 making 1.7 hrs in total. There were 15 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 26
