A party of four who were descending off Scafell Pike contacted Cumbria Police due to concerns regarding one of their party who was struggling to walk. A Team Leader was able to make contact with the party and encourage them to continue as best they could due to deteriorating light conditions and the temperature dropping. The party agreed to try and continue under their own steam, however, due to a second medical emergency occurring Duddon and Furness MRT were asked to monitor their progress and respond if they were unable to progress any further. Fortunately the party were ultimately able to make their own way off the fell. Thank you to Duddon and Furness MRT for their continued support.

Incident started at 15:48 and ended at 20:17 making 4.5 hrs in total. There were 7 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 213 073. Total rescuer hours: 32
