A group of teenagers had to be rescued after getting lost in the dark on the Peak District’s second highest hill.

Glossop Mountain Rescue Team was called out at 11.20pm on Sunday when the 11 called for help from Bleaklow.

Colleagues from the Woodhead team and a Search and Rescue Dogs Association member and animal from Edale MRT joined the search for the group of walkers.

A Glossop MRT spokesperson said: “The group was quickly located near to Glossop Low shooting cabins and were treated for the effects of the cold due to the lack of appropriate clothing and equipment.

“They were taken back to Glossop Police Station for a debrief about their ordeal.”

The rescue ended at 1.20am on Monday.
