Incident report

A report was received from Staffordshire Police that a young person out enjoying the craggy outcrop of the Roaches, had become stuck somewhere in the vicinity of the Don Whillans Hut and reported that they could also see Hen Cloud.

We attempted to use phone-find to ping the exact location but were unsuccessful.

When team members arrived in the area, they located the casualty who thankfully was able to be released from his stuck position by one of the team.

The casualty was assessed and was deemed to have no injuries.

Incident was closed just before 11 pm!
