Incident report

Buxton Mountain Rescue Team were interrupted for a second time during a First Aid training exercise to help search for a group of lost walkers in open country between South Head and Rushup Edge.

The group consisted of five sixteen year old girls from the Accrington area, engaged in a weeks outdoor activity. Contact via mobile phone enabled the team to identify a probable search area, and two team vehicles with personnel were deployed.

Having located the group, they were escorted to the road – and following some refreshment, transported by team vehicle back to their accommodation in Edale.
