We were called again by Police about 2 more walkers reporting themselves to be benighted after attempting to walk back from Wasdale Head to their car at Seathwaite and their torch had failed. This was aggravated by one of them having a hip injury which was slowing them walking. Initially attempts were made to get them moving but in the end a stretcher was needed to help evacuate one of the walkers. We were joined by our colleagues from Duddon and Furness Mountain Rescue Team for support with the evacuation.

Incident started at 23:20 and ended at 08:00 making 8.7 hrs in total. There were 10 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY2139 0950. Total rescuer hours: 87
