A mountain rescue team has paid tribute to one of its members who has died after a short illness.

Buxton Mountain Rescue Team said Tim Pendleton was a valued volunteer member.

A team spokesperson said: “Tim joined the team in 2012 and was a dedicated operational team member.

“He was a very experienced rope rescue supervisor working in the oil fields of the North Sea and many windfarms across Europe. He had an interesting background having served in the French Foreign Legion.

“The team sends their sincere condolences to Tim’s family at this sad time.”

The funeral of the 56-year-old will take place at Macclesfield Crematorium on Thursday and will be attended by his family along with team members.

Mr Pendleton’s family have asked that donations in memory his memory be made to Buxton Mountain Rescue Team.
