2016 Incident #33 – 17 September 2016 22:50 hrs – Whernside/Dent

Team called by Cumbria police. A group of 5 DofE teenagers were reporting themselves lost, with one member having a slight injury, in the Whernside/Dent area. Although this was on Cave Rescues (CRO) patch they were dealing with an incident and asked if we could follow this up. As our search teams (with search dogs Fern and Cuillin) began to RV at the given location alongside members from CRO news arrived that they had been located by their assessor and were safely down. Team back at base by 02:10hrs. (preparing to help run today’s NPSARCOG ex at 08:00hrs)
