Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team snow footage

Members of the Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team, based in Cumbria, have been called out to five incidents over the past couple of days due to the snow.

This footage shows the team attending a call out to an elderly woman, however they were cut off at the junction of Corney Fell road, and had to make the rest of the journey on foot.

They climbed through massive snow drifts on the A595, and came across cars buried under the snow.

They stopped at every car to make sure there was nobody trapped inside, and fortunately all the cars were empty.

Watch the footage from team chairman John Bamforth, below:
