Just before 2AM today the team was contacted regarding a missing person enquiry in the Wrexham area. As the initial information for our activity was being gathered, the good news was received that North Wales Police had located the missing person and we stood down.

Immediately after we were stood down from the Ruthin callout on Sunday, we were tasked to another mountain biker at Llandegla Forest. The first team members to arrive were able to provide assistance back to the car park and onward transport to hospital was arranged.

On Sunday afternoon we were called to assist a mountain biker near Ruthin. He was believed to have serious injuries. A local team member was able to get to the incident quickly while another group of team members travelled from base where our rope rescue training was just completing.
The first team member to arrive happily found that the injured male had in fact managed to make it back to the road and was going to be treated by ambulance. We therefore stood down… just in time for the next callout (more later).
