Glossop and Edale mountain rescue teams were called to assist two climbers who had fallen at Stanage Edge on Sunday.

A 25-year-old woman had fallen on Martello Buttress, pulling off her companion, a 53-year-old man, in the process.

Glossop member Peter Jozefczyk said: “A large number of climbers helped in the evacuation of both casualties by forming a human chain to move the loaded stretchers to the waiting helicopters. It was a really humbling experience to see so many people work together to offer their help.”
