The team was contacted about two overdue walkers on Scafell Pike. A small group left our training session to check car parks for the missing pair’s motorbikes. Staff at the Wasdale Head Inn reported that they had seen two men who fitted the description earlier in the evening and so we returned to base. Shortly after this we received official confirmation from the police that the two men had turned up safe and well.
Incident started at 20:00 and ended at 21:10 making 1.2 hrs in total. There were 24 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 29
