Incident: 94 2018

Date: 23 and 24 June 2018
Time: 13.18hrs
Location: Greenhead

North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team and ourselves were called out by Northumbria Police on Saturday to assist in the search for 74 year old Walter Hutton in the Greenhead area.

Sadly just after midday on Sunday a body was located. Our thoughts go out to Walter’s family and friends, and the local community at this difficult time.

The Teams were assisted by a Swiftwater Rescue Team from Northumberland Fire and Rescue Service, two Search And Rescue Dog Association England teams from Teesdale and Weardale Search and Mountain Rescue Team and Swaledale Mountain Rescue Team. Additional members from TWSMRT were also available should we have needed them.

The incident involved 20 members on day one for 8 hours and 16 members on day two for 4 hours.
