The team received a request for help from a fell runner on the top of Kinder Scout who had slipped and broken his torch. Now finding it increasingly difficult to navigate in the dark and mist he called for our assistance. Fortunately he was in an area with good mobile coverage, so we were able to pinpoint his location using PhoneFind technology. Two search parties were dispatched to his location, where he was found cold but uninjured. He was warmed up before being walked back down the hill.
