Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was called by Cumbria Police last night to locate a female who had become lost when darkness descended. She was reported to be in the area of Angle Tarn Pikes.

The Team was able to successfully locate the woman by requesting she downloaded the app "OS Locate" which, when installed, provided the team with an accurate grid reference. This grid gave a location close to Satura Crags.As she was uninjured the Team sent a small party via Hayeswater to assist with her walk off.

The Team would like to take this opportunity to emphasis the need to carry a map, compass and torch at all times.

The callout lasted 3hrs and was attended by 3 members
