In the third and last incident of the evening, another lone walker was reported significantly overdue from their accommodation at a local pub. His intended route was known which was very helpful.
However shortly after Cumbria Police passed this on to us, it was confirmed that he had returned back to his accommodation safe and well, but exhausted from a long and hot day out. This incident was closed.
After a very busy time for the Team Leader and others in control room, the effort re-concentrated on callout #131, high up on Scafell Pike. Once this was successfully concluded there was a final additional tasking for a few members of the team to enable ‘carbohydrate replenishment’ for the returning team 😋😋 🍕 🍟

Incident started at 19:23 and ended at 21:03 making 1.7 hrs in total. There were 4 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 7
