Person lost on the Denbigh Moors and rescue at Pontcysyllte Aqueduct
NEWSAR assistance was requested by North Wales Police to locate a missing male person in rough, open countryside in the Denbigh Moor area – there was particular concern as the man had inadequate clothing and had been caught out by one of the wildest rain storms of the summer. A limited callout with one vehicle and five team members was initiated, but police officers managed to locate the man before the NEWSAR crew arrived at scene.
As the vehicle from the previous incident was being parked up at NEWSAR Base, a report was received that a man was in a precarious location at Pontcysyllte Aqueduct near Llangollen – North Wales Police requested assistance in what had the potential to develop into a technical rope rescue. A full team callout was put in motion, and team members were still travelling to the scene when the police reported back that the matter was resolved – the Team was stood down.
