Thirty rescuers from four separate teams were involved in the rescue of two girls trapped on a south Wales hillside.

Police alerted the volunteer teams to the plight of the children who were cragfast on Mynydd James, east of Blaina in Gwent.

Volunteers from Central Beacons, Brecon and Longtown Mountain Rescue Teams were joined by colleagues from the Western Beacons Mountain Search and Rescue Team in the operation, which saw team members make their way over steep ground to where the two girls had become stuck after picking berries.

They were made safe and kept warm before a semi-technical rescue saw them lowered to safe ground and their waiting families.

Rob Jones of Central Beacons MRT said: “They were unharmed but cold after a longer than intended adventure.”
