Incident report

Buxton Mountain Rescue Team called by West Midlands Ambulance Service to an incident involving an elderly man somewhere in the Dane Valley between Wincle and Rushton Spencer.

The area is very remote and devoid of easy road access.  Information was confusing from the start but the casualty was finally located by an air-ambulance.  The aircraft and crew were able to deal with the incident and rescue team members were stood down.
