Birk Fell

Incident 42 of 2022
24/09/22, 15.09, Birk Fell, NY297017
It was a clear and sunny afternoon when CUMPOL (Cumbria Police), asked us to assist a lady who was lost, with her dog, on Birk Fell.
Once she was located on our map after sending a link to her phone, the lady was given advice on how to find her way off the fell. We followed her progress to ensure she was heading in an appropriate direction. We then deployed one Land Rover with two team members to rendezvous with her in Greenburn, and once we had picked her up drove her to her car at the summit of Wrynose Pass for her onward journey home.
6 members attended and the Incident took 2hrs 11 mins.
