The team were on standby throughout the day due to the sudden snow last night.
Around 11:30 a few team members were requested to help a poorly gentleman be transferred to an ambulance as he lived deep in the moors and was snowed in.
Our specialist Hilux, Mobile 2 was used and a couple of members assisted the gentleman safely to the awaiting ambulance.
