The team was called out this afternoon (Sunday 9th Feb). Unfortunately no further information can be released due to the sensitive nature of this incident.
Following the call out the team have been out to various locations across our area to assist with flooding and water incidents caused by Storm Ciara.
At that time, there were 70 flood alerts in places across Lancashire and over 225 throughout the UK.
The picture shows how dangerous the River Irwell can be after heavy rain fall.
The Rossendale & Pendle Mountain Rescue Team is a fully voluntary organisation which responds to those in need in our local community. The Team is on-call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and relies entirely on donations from members of the public to carry out this essential life-saving rescue service.
