Call from the Police at 1740 hrs regarding two people reporting themselves "lost" and in thick mist/dark on Great Gable. They had also said they were at map ref 218 095 and standing by a stretcher box (in other words, most probably at Sty Head. The Team leader spoke to them on their mobile and established that they did have torches and intended to go back to Seathwaite, on the Keswick side. They were given directions, relative to the few features they could see and describe and they did find their own way off the hill without further MR involvement. They rang me to confirm they were down at about 1730 hrs. and were very grateful for the guidance given.

Incident started at 15:30.
