A SEARCH and rescue team responded to an injured walker on Moel Famau.

North East Search and Rescue (NEWSAR) was called to the incident at 12.30pm on Tuesday afternoon to support with the walker - who had sustained a leg injury.

A spokesman for the team said: “We had limited location information initially and this resulted in a search along several possible routes.

"He was found on one of the quieter paths and hadn't seen any passers by which is unusual for a busy hill.

"We usually use some 'phone wizardry' to locate people, but it doesn't always work and we went back to basics with 'rapid search parties' moving quickly along trails.

"Once located the man was assessed by our Casualty Carer and then assisted to a location where he could be collected by a team Landrover.

"He was then taken to the road and family/friends took him to hospital."

NEWSAR is a registered charity providing a 24-hour search and rescue service.
