Search – 20th January 2019 – 18:18 – Egton High Moor – 01/2019

Called by North Yorkshire Police at to reports of a red flare being seen above Egton High Moor in the North York Moors National Park.

Thanks to a good description of the likely location of the flare and evidence on the ground we identified the launch site as being the junction of a green lane and public highway. After a search around of that area it was determined that there was no one in distress and the team were stood down by the police.

Eighteen team members and four team vehicles deployed for four hours.

We would ask that people think carefully about the implications of releasing pyrotechnics or fireworks in remote places.
