A call from Cumbria Police was passed across from Cockermouth MRT as on investigation it was likely to be in our area. A walker had heard shouts, whistles and dogs barking. The Team Leader asked a team member to further investigate whether it could be people and trail hounds on the fell. This was confirmed to be very likely the case when they were met coming off the fell at Nether Beck, and the log closed. A false alarm with good intent.
Incident started at 14:48 and ended at 15:43 making 0.9 hrs in total. There were 2 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY147085. Total rescuer hours: 1.8
