The Buxton Mountain Rescue Team has taken delivery of a new response vehicle.

The new incident control vehicle replaces an older version which was retired and passed on to another rescue team in the Severn Valley earlier this year.

It is based on an all-wheel drive Ford Transit 350 van, which has undergone extensive conversion by Clarks Vehicles of Doncaster with electrical fitting out by A.P.B. Mobile Installations Ltd of Peterborough. Local dignitaries gathered at the base in Dove Holes to mark the arrival of the vehicle.
