Incident report

Buxton tem was called to Edale, following a call for assistance received from a Duke of Edinburgh group from Sutton in Ashfield, lost after walking on Kinder Scout. Mobile phone contact was soon established and following a conversation about their route and what they could see around them before it became dark, their location was thought to be on the South Western side of Kinder Scout. Search sections and a search and rescue dog were tasked into the area where we suspected the group were and contact maintained with the group. The group were quickly located and escorted off the hill.
