Incident report

Buxton Mountain Rescue Team called following the report from two walkers and their dog that they were lost in the cloud somewhere around the Jacobs Ladder area.  Whilst Buxton MRT responded with fifteen members to start the search, Kinder and Edale MRTs were placed on standby in case the incident developed.

Fortunately the two were met by two other walkers with a better sense of direction (and possibly a map and compass!) who led them down Jacobs Ladder.  After meeting team members the two walkers were taken by Land Rover back to Edale.
