Date: 23 and 24 June 2018
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.
