Incident report

Buxton Mountain Rescue Team responded to an urgent call from Derbyshire Police to assist an air-ambulance crew with a casualty on the hillside above Litton Mill.  Regrettably, despite the all the efforts of the ambulance paramedics, the middle aged man from Sheffield died at the scene.

Team members later carried the deceased to the Monsal Trail where police officers were able to carry out further investigations.

Buxton MRT members express their deepest sympathy to all friends and relatives of the deceased.
