Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT

Two walkers returning from Scafell Pike had ran out of day light after one of the couple developed a sore knee that slowed progress. They managed to phone for help but as they had limited phone battery life they could not be pin pointed using Phonefind/Sarloc. Keswick Team sent two parties one to check both sides of the gill to Styhead pass and the other up Grains Gill. Fortunately they were quickly found part way up Grains Gill and after an assessment of the knee walked backed to their car at Seathwaite.
