The weather was wet and thunder storms were to be expected in the coming hours.

The team were contacted by Cumbria Police (CUMPOL) who had been alerted by a concerned parent that one of there family members was overdue from there walk in the Coniston fells.

The lone walker was contacted and was able to say that he was safe and well but off track. With help from our SARLOC system ( a text message can be sent to a phone and after following a link, your whereabouts show on our mapping software) the location of the individual was found.
