Incident report

Buxton Mountain Rescue Team called at 5.20 p.m. on Monday 3rd July following a report of a party of walkers descending the steps on Jacob’s Ladder trying to carry one of their number who had a leg injury.  Details were uncertain and consequently only a limited number of members were called to make an investigation.

Despite a search of Jacob’s Ladder, and other routes with steps, no trace of the party was found.

The team members stood down and returned to base.
