We were called to assist a party of 2 adults and 2 young people who had become caught out by the loss of light and poor weather.
Some of the party were becoming very cold and we were concerned about the onset of hypothermia. We were able to locate their position using SARLOC, which allowed us to send our first party straight to their location. After assessment and warming up in our casualty tent, they were all able to walk off back to our waiting LandRovers for evacuation back to Hayfield.
