***Incident 002 2017***

Incident No: 02
Date: 11 January 2017
Time: 14:19hrs
Location: Berwick

Northumbria Police requested North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team and ourselves this afternoon to provide technical rope rescue skills in order to recovery a body from the foot of the cliffs near Berwick. As the Team’s Incident Officer was responding to the activation by the Police, we were informed that the Coastguard and RNLI were able to deal with the situation.

Our thoughts are with the deceased person’s families and friends at this difficult time.

The incident involved two members for five minutes.
