1500hrs - The team were contacted by Patterdale MRT to support them on a callout for a 71 year old male who had fallen from Striding Edge. The team were stood down while deploying to the incident as a coastguard helicopter had managed to access the scene, winch the casualty and transport him to hospital.
Unfortunately he sustained fatal injuries in the fall, whilst taking part in an activity which he loved in great weather.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.
9 team members for 30 minutes.
