We were called by Police about a group of 3 walkers who had spent an unscheduled night out on Scafell Pike and were now requesting help to get off the mountain. It was initially difficult to locate them due to difficulty getting a phone signal. Later they were located with the help of Sarloc and soon after they bumped into another group of walkers who were able to help them down without us needing to deploy.
