Alert only – Mar. 26th Tue. 08.22hrs – Pen y ghent, Horton in Ribblesdale, North Yorkshire – Alert only

A ringing smartphone

Yorkshire Ambulance Service received a call, saying that a walker (m, 45) was fitting ‘on top of Pen y ghent’. YAS deployed both road and air ambulances, calling CRO as an added precaution. From home, the duty controller could see that the cloud base was well above the summit, so agreed with YAS that CRO would not go out. It then transpired that the casualty had come round and had not been on the summit, anyway. With no response to CRO’s Phonefind message, the duty controller rang the caller, who said they were walking off the hill and only two minutes from the road. He was asked to wait at the former Horton in Ribblesdale Primary School, to meet the two ambulances.
