Incident report

Buxton Mountain Rescue Team called to assist walkers who had lost their bearings in early darkness, heavy rain, low cloud and wind along the southern edges of Kinder.

A search dog unit from Edale aso joined the search for two adults from the Derby area, and their pet dog. As all the rivers were in spate, a specialist water unit was deployed in addition to the usual search sections.

Search units located the benighted couple on the edge path at the top of the Golden Clough junction. As they were not injured, they were escorted safely off the hill down into Edale village.
