Little Langdale

Incident 45 of 2021:-
05/10/2021, 10:15, Little Langdale, NY330031
There was a Met Office yellow warning for heavy rain covering most of the day, and the wind was gusty. We were called out by our colleagues at Duddon and Furness MRT who were leading a search for a missing young man. Three other teams were also assisting in quite a large operation in the southern Lakes.
We despatched all three vehicles, having been tasked to search along the Walna Scar track, and to Torver and Goat’s Water to the sides. We also looked in Guard’s Wood after a report of smoke from a camp fire.
The young man was eventually found by a member of the public, who flagged down a vehicle from Langdale and Ambleside MRT, and he was taken to their base to recover.
The incident involved 5 mountain rescue teams (one more was stood down early on), and our team contributed 15 volunteer members for 4 hours 15 minutes.
