Two boys in their mid to late teens went missing on the Hadrian’s Wall Path yesterday and failed to turn up at the meeting point with their parents. Thankfully soon after Northumbria Police contacted ourselves and North of Tyne MRT, and initial enquiries were being made by one of our incident controllers, the boys turned up safe and well.

We like these types of incidents!

*** Incident No.25 ***

Earlier this afternoon the Team and North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team were called out to evacuate a female walker from near to Sycamore Gap on Hadrian’s Wall. The walker has sustained a suspected dislocated knee. As the Teams were travelling to Steel Rigg, a French nurse, who happened to be walking in the area, came across the walker. The nurse immobilised the walker’s leg and assisted the walker back to the car park – it is really pleasing to see such acts of kindness. Mountain Rescue personnel then assessed the casualty before transporting her down to Once Brewed and onto Hexham Hospital.
