near Goats Hause

Incident 1 of 2022:-
03/01/2022, 16.02, near Goats Hause, SD266984
The weather was rubbish for our first rescue of 2022: dark, cold, windy and driving rain. A pair of walkers had lost their way on the featureless west side of Brim Fell, and called Cumbria Police for help. They were able to locate the party using a phonefinder app, and we despatched three Land Rovers to ensure that we had plenty of resources to find them. Conditions on the hill were not easy, but they had a torch and whistle which meant that we found them quickly, gave them more clothing and escorted them down to our vehicles.
16 volunteer team members attended, and the incident took 3.4 hours.
