The team was called to assist a multi-agency response to rescue a woman from her car, that had rolled 150 metres down steep ground and come to rest on its side. The lone female passenger was seriously injured. All agencies worked together to extricate her and evacuate her to a point from where she was winched into a Seaking helicopter from RAF Boulmer and flown to RVI, Newcastle.
We were requested by police to recover the occupants of a car that had skidded on to it's roof on an ice covered road. They were uninjured. We also assisted the police in recovering their vehicle after it became stranded in similar conditons
