Unknown Location – Sat 10th Nov 2012

We were contacted by Police about a group of 2 who were walking on the Slight Side ridge of Scafell and been caught in a snow storm. Unfortunately their compass had fallen to bits and they were now disorientated. Fortunately by the time we phoned the weather had improved slightly and they were able to walk off themselves after some directions towards Burnmoor Tarn and back to Boot.
