A call was received from Cumbria Police about two walkers who had lost their intended route down to Eskdale and were seeking assistance. Using a combination of Phonefind, text messaging and phone calls the walkers were directed down to Wasdale valley which was the quickest and safest option before the daylight was lost. Once the walkers were confirmed to be back off the fell and at their accommodation the log was closed.
