Couple rescued from Kinder Scout

A COUPLE who became trapped in a deep bog in the middle of Kinder Scout, needed rescuing by Buxton Mountain Rescue Team late on Sunday night.

The pair, from Doncaster had driven to Edale and set off for a days walk on Kinder.

Following a satellite navigation bearing they ended up in the deep peat bog. Although they freed themselves, it was growing dark and as they had no torch they rang for help.

When found they were cold, but unhurt. They were then escorted back down to Edale and were able to return home.
