On Thursday afternoon North Wales Police called the team regarding a male in his 70’s who had sustained a lower leg injury on the top path to Moel Famau. He was reported as unable to walk. When team members arrived his walking companions had managed to get him down to the carpark. He was examined by a team doctor who advised he should attend hospital so he was taken in one of our Landrovers. Get well soon.
