A DofE group were walking in an area with no phone signal when one of them slipped and sustained a head injury. They activated an SOS beacon and Keswick team were contacted via the police. Initially the location and nature of the incident was unclear but a nearby DofE group supervisor was able to make their way to the casualty to confirm that the team was required and provided a grid reference. Keswick team arrived to find the casualty well wrapped up, and after an assessment by a team doctor, was deemed to have recovered sufficiently to be able to walk to the team vehicles at Newland Hause.
