Incident report

Four rescue teams from Buxton, Edale, Kinder and Glossop together with a number of Search Dog Units were called at dawn following the report of a male fell-runner missing overnight. 

The usual Kinder South search plan was activated with the four teams starting to assemble in readiness to send members across the moor from various starting points.  Buxton MRT was to work from Edale Station but fortunately, as members were being deployed, the runner managed to find his way back to Crookstone Barn.  Having spent a cold night on the hill and suffering an ankle injury he was transported by a rescue team vehicle back to Edale Team base for onward transfer to hospital.
