Six people, thought to be university students, have gone missing while walking in the Cairngorms. The group from the Leeds area failed to return from an expedition in the Scottish Highlands yesterday.
The Police Service of Northern Ireland is helping Northern Constabulary with the search, as well as mountain rescue teams from the Lake District and Ogwen Valley in Wales. Speaking to STV, one of the rescue team, Donnie Williamson, said:
Weather conditions are hellish. We can't see our knees. The access road is blocked and as soon as it is cleared, it all blows back in again so we are having difficulty getting our vehicles up the hill.
