Incident report

Just as team members were thinking about the evening meals and activities, we received a call from Derbyshire Constabulary to assist them with an incident on the southern edges of Kinder Scout. The exact location of the incident was not precisely known, and to get as much resource to the location as quickly as possible, our colleagues in Kinder Mountain Rescue Team was also called to assist in the search.

A family group had been walking on Kinder and had seen a person they had become concerned about and, with night approaching and worsening weather, they called Mountain Rescue.

The person was soon located and escorted off the hill to safety.

The team would like to thank the family group for staying with the casualty and assisting us in locating them so quickly.
