Incident report

BMRT were tasked by the Police Emergency Planning to work with Derby MRT to conduct welfare checks on all persons on the A515 between Buxton and Ashbourne and where required return persons to a place of safety. The clearance was assisted by Derbyshire County Council snow plough on the way out. Returning to Base was complicated by worsened weather and drifting snow, leaving the team to travel back by an alternative route assisting with clearing snow and stranded vehicles to create throughway for gritters and ploughs at Taddington crossroads on the A6.
