Birk Fell / Greenburn 19:31hrs 10th October (39/2012)
A party of 4 walkers requested help to find their way off the fells.
They were tired and were taking longer than anticipated to complete the walk. As such, they had only one torch to help with the darkness. The drizzle and cloud, as well as the very slippy terrain, also added to their problems.
Fortunately the party was soon located as they had given a grid reference so we had an idea of their whereabouts. They were escorted safely to the waiting landrover and then driven back to their own cars.
A successful call out taking less than 2 hours.
