Yewdale Fells 24th August 2013 14:34hrs (29/2013)


The weather was warm, dry and sunny.

A man and wife were lost on the fells between Coniston and Tilberthwaite. They were unable to find a path down towards the village.

Fortunately by using the SARLOC system (a link to a mobile phone’s location) the couple were soon located on the map in the mountain rescue base. One landrover with a full quota of team members went to their assistance whilst another member who was already in the area with her SARDA dog, made her way to the area identified. The casualties were asked to make themselves visible and to be heard, and they were soon located. They were accompanied safely down off the fell.

A total of 10 team personnel attended this call out which took 1 3/4hrs.
