Incident report

Reports of two walkers unsure of their location on the Kinder plateau in failing light. The Peak District Mountain Rescue “Kinder Plan” was initiated, with Buxton, Kinder, Edale and Glossop Mountain Rescue Teams all mobilised to search pre-allocated sections of Kinder.

The pair were located after a good old fashioned search by team members, torches and three trained search dogs. The walkers were well and ready to be escorted off the hill and back to Edale.
