Alert only – Aug. 11th Sat. 21.49hrs – Ingleborough, North Yorkshire – Alert only

A caller contacted North Yorkshire Police to ‘express concern’ for 2 male walkers she had seen some 2 and a half hours earlier on Ingleborough, because they looked as though they were ‘struggling and not well equipped’.

Given the time elapsed, and the fact that ‘struggling and not well equipped’ could equally apply to probably 50% of those who attempt the Yorshire 3 Peaks Challenge each year, the Duty Controller decided not to commit team members to an almost certainly futile search, without first receiving a call from the individuals concerned.

No such call was received overnight.
