The team was contacted by Lancashire Police in the early hours of the morning, following initial reports of a missing person in the Rossendale area. The team was put on standby pending further investigation by the Police. Other resources were utilised overnight with use of NPAS (Police helicopter).
The team was then contacted again with news that the missing person had been located and there was now a request from North West Ambulance Service to assist in evacuating the casualty.
Team members mobilised and responded but were stood down whilst en-route. We wish the casualty a speedy recovery.
