Scafell Pike
Other Agencies
A call was received from Cumbria Police about a lone walker who was overdue from a walk up Scafell Pike. Concerned relatives made the call after there was no contact for many hours after a successful ascent.
As the Team Leader was considering next steps, including a large search as the last known location was the summit, good news was received that he had made contact and was safe and well. He had walked out via Eskdale, and a very helpful member of the public was giving him a lift out of the valley.

3. Am I confident that I have the KNOWLEDGE & SKILLS for the day?
