Tilberthwaite High Fells

Incident 30 of 2020:-
30/08/2020, 21:15, Tilberthwaite High Fells, NY287015
The evening was fine, if cool, but the nights are already drawing in and sunset was at 20:05. A pair of walkers was caught out when darkness fell while they were still on Wetherlam. They had head torches but were on steep ground, could see no path and so were lost. We despatched two Land Rovers to Greenburn, and put blue lights on. The missing pair was able to see these, so shone their torches back so that we could locate them. We then ascended the fell, escorted them down and drove them back to their local campsite.
The incident involved 7 volunteer team members and took 3hrs 20mins.
