We’ve worked alongside NWP Rural Crime Team this evening.
Our role was initially to assist with a potentially serious road traffic collision, with a vehicle some way off the highway. There was a need for rapid response and our NWP friends turned out with the best vehicles they had immediately available.
Fortunately they found that the motorist wasn’t seriously injured and we then stood down.
Just at this point the weather took a sudden turn for the worse and the NWP Officers found themselves at the top of a very big hill with snow over ice, so they then asked us to help get down safely.
Two of our vehicles then deployed with two team members. They carefully helped to clear the worst of the snow and ice using grit and shovels, so the police vehicles could be safely recovered. The NWP Officers have then dealt with the motorist who has been left in a safe place to make their own way home.
