Scafell – Sat 5th Oct 2013 – Callout 60 in 2013

Not long after finishing the previous incident we were contacted again about whistle blasts heard near Scafell. They were said to be 6 blasts / minute which is the recognised mountain distress signal. One group of informants who had phoned the incident in went to investigate a found a group of 2 who were lost / tired and walked them down to Wasdale, avoiding the need for further action by the team. This was particularly public spirited as they actually wanted to be in Langdale and had to arrange for a lift. Thanks for the help !
