Whilst the Yewbarrow incident was ongoing another call came reporting 2 walkers overdue from a walk on Scafell Pike. Fortunately this resolved itself very quickly with no team involvement.
Incident started at 19:39.
We were called by Police about a party of three on the 3 peaks reported overdue. It became apparent when speaking to the informant the party had been seen descending into Eskdale from Mickledore and it was decided to allow them more time to turn up. They arrived back at Brackenclose at 03:30 without the team needing to get involved.
Incident started at 02:15 and ended at 03:30 making 1.3 hrs in total.
