*** Incident 41 ***

A busy period continues with our sixth call-out in two weeks. The Team along with North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team were called by Northumbria Police to attend an incident at Harbottle. A 10 year old boy had climbed on top of the Drakestone and was unable to reverse climb.

Assisted by the Northumberland Fire & Rescue Service crew from Rothbury and a specialist rope access team from Alnwick, the boy was eventually lowered to the ground.

The incident lasted 2.5 hours and involved 10 rescue Team members.
