The team was called by Cumbria Police regarding a family whose dog was injured as they were crossing the Screes boulder field. They felt unable to move safely in either direction. A limited callout was made to deploy the team boat and ‘pick off’ the family group. Other team members made their way on foot to provide reassurance. The transfer to the boat was completed successfully and the family dropped off on the other side of the lake where their car was located. The team then stood down and returned to base to ready the vehicles for the next callout.

Incident started at 16:33 and ended at 20:33 making 4 hrs in total. There were 17 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY158055. Total rescuer hours: 68
