We were called by Police about 2 walkers reporting themselves lost whilst trying to return to Seathwaite from Scafell Pike via the Corridor Route. Their initial position was established with help from SARLOC and attempts were made to talk them down. Unfortunately these were not successful and a small team went on the fell to help guide them off. They were located on the Sty Head side of Stand Crag and then walked down to Wasdale.
