A Peak District rescue team is appealing for information after thieves put one of its rescue vehicles out of action.

Edale Mountain Rescue Team said when its volunteers turned out this afternoon, they discovered parts had been stripped from one of its Land Rover ambulances.

Driving lights and a snorkel kit, which allows air to be drawn into the engine from a high position, enabling it to drive through flood water, were missing from the vehicle.

A team spokesperson said: “This vehicle is now not available for callouts until repairs can be made.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact South Yorkshire Police on 101, quoting crime number K5476-2015.
