  • Thanks John, I hope you're on the mend. Unfortunately the grid reference given was near the Duck Pond, and the postcode was for the top of the road, fortunately a quick call to the EMAS crew helped locate you.

  • I was the unlucky/careless person who broke his ankle. I am most appreciative of the help provide by the Derby MRT in getting me off the hillside and down to the Ambulance. It was cold up there.
    By way of constructive comment I have to say that I was surprised at the apparent difficulty MRT had in locating the EMAS ambulance. It was only on your third pass of the path approaching the site that contact was actually made. One imagines that with modern technology, a better incident location method should be explored. This does not detract from my appreciation of your help. Kind regards
