The team received a call from Cumbria Police from someone reporting a lone walker with an injured ankle. The person was unable to help the walker to the nearest road and so had called for help. Several team members deployed direct but were unable to find anyone at the expected location. A search in the local area was coordinated, with more team members arriving in team vehicles from base, and also the local Coastguard team searching the coastline. Happily, after about an hour Cumbria Police confirmed they had found the person and the team stood down.


Incident started at 10:51 and ended at 13:40 making 2.8 hrs in total. There were 21 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NX 944149. Total rescuer hours: 59
