A Duke of Edinburgh team has been airlifted to safety after one of their members fell unconscious while hiking in Devon.

The young walkers called an ambulance to Cornwood on Dartmoor last night, and were assisted by the local search and rescue team.

It's still not clear what condition the injured member is in.
