As we were finishing our Sunday exercise, we were called by NWAS to assist with the evacuation of an injured walker in Lyme Park.
The team were asked to assist in the location of a lost lone walker. Fortunately we had just got a SARLOC fix and were on our way to collect her when news came through from the police that a fell runner had met her and was escorting her back down into Edale where she was met by a SARDA handler.
We were asked by Woodhead MRT to pick up a group of disorientated walkers that they had encountered whilst covering a fell race. A single vehicle was despatched to pick them up and return them to Hayfield.
We were called out at 5pm to assist with a search for a pair of ladies lost on the plateau. The weather was closing in and it was reported one had lost a shoe in the peat bogs. The ladies had no idea where they were and SARLOC had failed to reach them.
For our first callout of the year, I was contacted by the duty controller to provide assistance out of area as both Buxton and Edale teams were already busy. A walker had slipped and broken her ankle on the way down from the summit of Mam Torr.
