On Monday evening 22nd December 14 members of Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team assisted Langdale Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team to search for a lone female fell walker who had become lost in the mist.

The woman from Richmond in North Yorkshire, was located by the Patterdale Team at Link Hause. She had been descending from Fairfield and was unhappy to continue on her intended route in the poor visibility so had waited in her bivi bag until she was located by Mountain Rescue. The woman was cold but unhurt and was guided from the fell down to Patterdale.
