Walker found by rescue team

Have your say

A MISSING man was tracked down by members of a Peak District mountain rescue team.

The 23-year-old man, from Peterborough, had got lost on a walk after setting off from Edale on a circular route.

He was found in the Crowden Tower area by members of the Buxton Mountain Rescue team and given food and a hot drink.

Neil Carruthers, Buxton team leader, said: “While it was not raining when the team was called, previous rain had raised the water levels in the streams which had made the planned route more challenging than the casualty had expected.

“He was quite well equipped, but the recent wet weather made this route far more interesting than the route he had seen described on the internet.

“It is important to consider the weather and if necessary, adjust your route to suit your skills on the day.”
