Search Dog, Megan, and her handler, were called to assist Kinder MRT who were looking for a group of 4 benighted walkers on the hill in poor weather conditions and fading light.
The group consisted of 2 adults, and two young people, who were extremely cold and concerned about the onset of hypothermia. A foot section had been deployed to a grid reference obtained through SARLOC, but the dog team was summoned to stand-by, if required.
The group was located and escorted safely off the hill. The dog unit was stood down.
