Mountain Rescue Team Called Out To Lords Rake


Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team were called out to an incident at Lords Rake, Scafell – Sat 12th Oct 2019.

A spokesperson from the team said:

We were called by NWAS about reports of 2 walkers hit by rockfall in Lords Rake, one sustaining a head injury and the other leg injuries. With the possibility of a serious incident the coastguard helicopter from Prestwick also attended and our colleagues in the Duddon and Furness Team were also contacted. Team members met the injured walkers in Hollowstones after they’d managed to make their own way down from Lords Rake. They were then evacuated to hospital by the Prestwick helicopter.

Wasdale MRT has been assisting people in the western fells for almost 50 years. It is one of twelve Teams in the Lake District Search and Rescue Association. The Team consists of 40 fell going volunteers and several base operators. Each year they respond to between 60 – 90 calls from the police to rescue people who are injured or lost in the local mountains. They also assist other organisations when requested. For example, in November 2009 the team assisted rescuing the people of Cockermouth during the severe flooding.

The Rescue Team provides a free 24-hour per day 365 days a year service to the public. They are tasked primarily by the Cumbria Constabulary who have primacy of search and rescue for inland areas.
