The team responded to two separate serious incidents and tragically they both happened on Wednesday 6th October. Our thoughts remain with the family and friends of the two walkers who sadly lost their lives and also to the members of the public that were involved. This is the second of those incidents. Our thanks to Duddon and Furness MRT and to Keswick MRT who responded throughout this period with additional team members and to the Cockermouth MRT who also offered their support. Thanks also to the Great North Air Ambulance crew, the North West Ambulance Service and the two Coastguard Search and Rescue helicopters from Caernarfon and Prestwick.


Incident started at 15:36 and ended at 23:51 making 8.3 hrs in total. There were 19 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 2151 0726. Total rescuer hours: 158
