Incident report

The Buxton team were called by Derbyshire Police to recover a family of four including young children who had become stuck on a very steep and ice covered section of Lesser Lane above Combs.   The family and their vehicle were safely recovered back to Combs village.

Drivers are requested to use their own judgment, rather than rely on satellite navigation in adverse winter conditions. Rural single track roads are sometimes left untreated or uncleared, or can cross high ground which will be more exposed to winter.
