A call was received from Cumbria Police. One of their cars was at Wasdale Head when they noticed flashing lights from torches towards the Screes. It was unclear whether they needed assistance as they appeared to be moving. A local team member was asked to support. However, having walked for a while towards the sighting, they were unable to see or find anything else. It was possible there was a connection with another police report elsewhere in the Lake District so this was monitored until the following day, before formally closing down later in the afternoon.

Incident started at 01:49 and ended at 15:30 making 13.7 hrs in total. There were 2 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY184068. Total rescuer hours: 27
