Buxton Mountain Rescue Team is warning walkers to take precautions before venturing onto the hills.

It comes after four ramblers – without torches and spare clothing – got lost on Kinder Scout as darkness fell.

A team spokesman said: “Despite the incredibly mild conditions there was a severe wind chill on the high ground and the group was glad to be moving again, down the Sled Track to Edale Village.

“The moral of this story is take a map, know how to use it, whistle, torch and spare clothing.”
