As we were walking off from the second incident we were called again by Police about 2 walkers who had also separated from their group and become lost somewhere between Scafell Pike Summit and Great End. It was initially difficult to re-contact them but eventually with help from SARLOC they were found to be close to Scafell Pike Summit. Team members who’d turned round after the second job and started walking back up the hill met them on the top and walked them back to Wasdale.
