Rescue workers had that sinking feeling when they went to the aid of an injured walker – and overturned their Land Rover.
The Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team was near Wessenden Lodge on the moors above Marsden when the accident happened on Tuesday night.
Thankfully, no-one was injured, and a couple from a nearby farm helped the team to recover the vehicle.
The team has been inundated with good wishes after posting pictures of the accident on its Facebook page.
A spokesman said: “A few people had seen the incident and taken pictures so we wanted to share something quickly on Facebook emphasising that everyone was OK.”
The Land Rover will go to a garage to be checked over.
The spokesman added: “The vehicle will now be comprehensively checked at a local garage and the damage repaired. We don’t have information yet on when it will be back in service but we want to emphasise that this does not affect the team’s ability to provide search and rescue services.
“We have our control vehicle and access to a number of alternative 4x4 vehicles and Land Rovers.
“Our next scheduled activity is to provide rescue cover for Holmfirth Harriers’ Holme Moss Fell Race on Sunday.
“We also want to express our extreme gratitude to the couple from the local farm who helped recover our Land Rover. Not sure what we would have done without your help!”
Comments on the team’s Facebook page included one saying; “Accidents happen. No one was injured, but I bet someone will get some good-natured ribbing.”
Another said: “Control. This is Mobile One. I’ve rolled the Landrover, over. Over.”
Edale Mountain Rescue and Kinder Mountain Rescue teams sent their best wishes.
Mark Hindle, who was out walking and witnessed the aftermath, said: “I was astonished when I saw what had happened.
“Ironically, they had gone out on a rescue call to help someone who in the end had managed to make their own way home without needing assistance.”
