Derby MRT

Derby Mountain Rescue Team’s principal area of operations extends from the southern Peak District to as far south as Milton Keynes, covering parts of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Staffordshire. They can also be called to assist teams in other areas when needed – in the past, attending incidents as far afield as Wales and Scotland, most notably the 2015 floods in Carlisle and Penrith, the Lockerbie Air Disaster and, closer to home, the Kegworth Air Disaster.
