The arrival of snow in Gosforth last Saturday resulted in traffic unable to get up the hill which then caused an increasing number of motorists stuck in deteriorating conditions. Cumbria Police called us, knowing that the base could possibly be used for welfare should the situation become prolonged and the weather worsen. Some local team members were able to walk to base and open up. However, a short while later the road was able to be gritted with the help of a local farmer and the traffic got moving again. The team closed up the base and stood down.

Incident started at 09:11 and ended at 10:39 making 1.5 hrs in total. There were 6 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 058042. Total rescuer hours: 9
