Incident report

Buxton and Edale teams responded to calls for help, seemingly from injured climbers near Cressbrook.

As the police had received two separate reports, giving doubt as to the exact location of the incident, Edale was deployed  to Cressbrook Mill, and Buxton further west to Cheedale, according to the given grid reference. Buxton started a initial search for two climbers, but it soon turned out that the shouts had come from a member of a group who was not injured and who was able to walk off the hill under his own steam.

After some words of advice from the police and a senior team member the person carried on their walk.
