Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team have a policy of obtaining written consent before publishing photgraphs where the casualty / casualty party can be identified. If anyone can readily identify themsleves and wish their photo to be removed or fuzzed out,then please contact us. The general policy of the team is that if an incident group / casualty cannot be identified on a photograph i.e. a back shot, a distant shot; then it is permissible to display as it is with general shots of public in the background. Only under specic circumstances (i.e. when the casualty actually writes a true story article and wishes their details to be included) will the team publish their supplied information. This policy also applies to the team Facebook page.
