Within the space of a single week a rescue team in the Lake District has had to find three separate groups of walkers who'd got lost in more or less the same location.
After the latest incident on Sunday 26th Feb, Duddon and Furness Mountain Rescue Team took to Facebook:
"In the last week the team have been called out three times to locate missing walkers in the Upper Esk area" they said.
"This morning [Sunday], we were asked to assist Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team to locate three walkers who had been reported missing after setting off to climb Scafell Pike yesterday [Saturday] afternoon. They were located less than 1km from the previous two groups in what has now become known as the Scafell Bermuda Triangle."
This follows an incident on 21st Feb when a couple were found in the area - one of the most remote spots in Cumbria - after a major search involving seven teams and a Coastguard helicopter. The pair were eventually found exhausted after an unp-lanned night out in awful weather, having spent 14 hours in a plastic bivy bag.
Rescuers said their bivvy bag may have saved their lives.
