Incident No: 87 2018

Date: 28 May 2018
Time: 17.33 hrs
Location: Border ridge, Northumberland National Park

A family who were cycling in the Cheviots reported themselves in distress at the Yearning Saddle Rescue Hut on the border ridge. Alongside North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team, we mobilised and made our way to the rescue hut. There was no sign of the family however, and a number of routes in the surrounding area were searched. As the search area extended, the Border Search and Rescue Unit also mobilised who located the family safe and well at 02:20 in a tent at Calroust.

The incident involved 18 MRT members on the English side of the border for 6 hours.
