We were called out by Derbyshire Police to assist with an incident on the southern edge of Kinder Scout. Buxton Mountain Rescue Team were asked to assist.
A family walking on Kinder Scout had seen a person they became concerned about, and with darkness approaching and the weather worsening, they called for help. The person was assisted off the hill.
We would like to thank the family for staying on the hill and assisting the two mountain rescue teams, which made the callout shorter than it could otherwise have been.
