Whilst most of the Team were away in the Cairngorms winter training, the remaining few alongside North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team had to deal with an incident involving two walkers.
The walkers had rung Northumbria Police stating they were overdue and still six miles from their vehicle, with the weather closing in. The walkers were, however, able to safely make their way off the hill to Low Bleakhope farm where they were met by Police officers. They were then taken back to their car.
The incident involved 2 members being deployed in a 4×4 with further members on standby for 1 hour.
