We were called by NWAS about reports of 2 walkers hit by rockfall in Lords Rake, one sustaining a head injury and the other leg injuries. With the possibility of a serious incident the coastguard helicopter from Prestwick also attended and our colleagues in the Duddon and Furness Team were also contacted. Team members met the injured walkers in Hollowstones after they’d managed to make their own way down from Lords Rake. They were then evacuated to hospital by the Prestwick helicopter.

Incident started at 10:51 and ended at 13:20 making 2.5 hrs in total. There were 13 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY207 068. Total rescuer hours: 33
