It had rained heavily all day and the tops of the fells were cloaked in cloud.

The team were contacted by CUMPOL to an incident where a young couple had become lost somewhere between Dow Crag and the Old Man of Coniston.

The couple were contacted by the team and there location was found using the Sarloc system (a text is sent to the mobile of the lost party and there location is given on a mapping system).

A small hill party ascended the fell and walked the couple back to the team land rovers. The couple were then escorted back to there vehicles at Fell Gate.

In total 9 team members attended this rescue which lasted just under 2 hours.
