The High Peak’s MP has hailed a victory in his campaign to secure financial support for the work of volunteer mountain rescue teams.

Andrew Bingham wrote to Chancellor George Osborne in the wake of the Budget announcement regarding the use of money obtained in fines levied on UK banks over the Libor scandal to support emergency services personnel.

In his letter, which was supported by a number of other colleagues, the MP requested the use of such money be extended to include members of the mountain rescue organisation.
