Ambleside – Hawkshead

19:48 (Grid NY374 002 )

It had been a fine day in the southern Lake District.

As darkness was falling the Team was contacted by Cumbria Police regarding a lone female walker who was struggling to find her way out of a field between Ambleside and Hawkshead, having become surrounded by cattle and was becoming quite distressed.

As the Duty Team Leader was trying to establish the exact position of the incident, the Team was stood down after receiving information that the lady was now safe as she had been assisted by a passing farmer.

This incident involved 1 Team member for 15 minutes although other members in the vicinity had assembled at base to assist if necessary.
