As the team members were making their way back to base from the first callout, another call was received from Cumbria Police regarding a group of four walkers who became disoriented whilst trying to descend to Borrowdale after summiting Scafell Pike. Wisely they realised they were not equipped for getting back to their car safely in worsening weather and with the daylight gone.
However as the Team Leader was gathering more information, a third tasking arrived via the police. The decision was made to request help for this callout from our friends at Duddon and Furness MRT to which they willingly accepted (as always).
Happily as their first vehicle arrived at Gavel Neese the missing group turned up at the Wasdale Head Inn and bumped into the Wasdale team preparing to set off into Mosedale for their search. After a swift debrief in the pub the teams were stood down. Many thanks once again to Duddon and Furness MRT for their help, and to the Wasdale Head Inn for making onward travel arrangements.

Incident started at 17:18 and ended at 21:09 making 3.9 hrs in total. There were 3 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 217081. Total rescuer hours: 12
