An elderly man had to be flown by air ambulance from a path near Kinder Scout after he became ill.

The Glossop Mountain Rescue Team were called out on Thursday afternoon after members of the Marple Ramblers Club became concerned about the health of one of their number.

When the team arrived the man was being treated by the air ambulance doctor.

He was then flown to Stepping Hill Hospital for further treatment.
