SEARCH and Rescue members and emergency service personnel were on hand to assist a person having a 'medical episode' on Moel Famau over the weekend.

It was another busy day for the North East Wales Search and Rescue (NEWSAR) team on Saturday (January 6) as they dealt with three callouts in a row.

One of them required their assistance alongside both North Wales Police and the Welsh Ambulance Service.

A NEWSAR spokesman said: "NWP requested our assistance with a person having a medical episode on the summit of Moel Famau.

"Two team vehicles were deployed, and the person was treated by the team. The casualty was brought down from the summit to the car park in one of our vehicles and was safely handed over to Welsh Ambulance Service."

The team also dealt with a missing person case which thankfully resulted in some good news.

NEWSAR added: "We were contacted by @northwalespolice requesting that we send a Phonefind for a vulnerable missing person from the Prestatyn area. The team was put to standby while the last few checks were going ahead to deploy. Good news came in that the person had been found."

Finally, there was also time for the team to help out a family whose vehicle had become stuck.

They said: "To complete the trilogy, we had a call late afternoon from NWP to assist a family who had got their off-road vehicle stuck. Once the team had located the vehicle, the family were given a lift back to safety.

"A huge thank you to our team of volunteers on a busy day."
