An EMRT spokesman said: “He was using a slightly vintage mobile phone so we were unable to use our phone-finding software to locate him.

While talking to him on the phone he spotted another walker in the distance and he was told to try and make contact with them which he did.

“Fortunately they were able to walk him off the moor saving the team having to deploy any resources.”
