A TEENAGE girl was rescued from a crag after becoming stuck while rock climbing and scrambling in the Burbage Valley.

The 16-year-old, from Sutton, London, was taking part in an outdoor activity week when she became wedged in a narrow gully 20 feet up.

Members of Buxton and Edale Mountain Rescue Team were called out to help the youngster who was struggling to breathe.

They use ropes to lower her to the bottom of the cliff.
