Emergency aid on moorland

INFORMATION discs have been placed on stiles on the Kinder Scout fence giving details of exact locations and what people should do in emergencies.

Neil Roden, of the Peak District Mountain Rescue team, said: “This is a great initiative which will really help the mountain rescue team in the Peak District.

“It will help save lives by alleviating distress and speeding up rescues on Kinder Scout.”

In all, there are nearly 160 discs to be placed on the stiles along the Kinder fencing. So far a third have gone up.
