An early morning call from the Border Search & Rescue Unit this morning for possible assistance with evacuating a walker who had been found in a hypothermic condition on the Border Ridge. The casualty was re-warmed in the Auchope shelter on the Pennine Way before being evacuated.
Without a doubt the emergency shelter built by the Northumberland National Park with assistance from Mountain Rescue volunteers has once again helped to save another life.
A total of 20 Team members were on standby for just over 2 hours.
