We were called at lunch time on New Year’s Day by Dyfed Powys Police to assist with the rescue of a woman with a suspected broken ankle on Rodney’s Pillar, just NE of Welshpool. As we arrived we got the good news that a local gamekeeper had provided 4×4 access to near the summit for the Welsh Ambulance Service crew who also attended. They were able to extract the casualty using the gamekeepers vehicle and we stood down.

Shortly before dark this evening our assistance was requested by North Wales Police after a group had become separated on Moel Famau for several hours. It had not been possible to contact the missing people by mobile phone. As we were responding the missing members of the group found the rest of the party and we stood down.

Just as it went dark this evening we responded to a request from North Wales Police to assist a walker and their dog who had taken a wrong turning up on Ruabon Mountain. They were off path and unable to reach safety without assistance.
We identified their location using some phone technology.
It was then relatively straightforward for a small party to reach them and walk back to our waiting vehicle.
