Jess the Labrador was unable to walk, and because of the location and her weight, her owner was unable to carry her back to the road.

The rescue team wrapped Jess in a casualty bag and strapped her onto a stretcher before she was carried back to the road.

Jess’s owner, Jen, posted on Facebook: ‘Thank you so much Edale Mountain Rescue Team for helping Amyleigh Watts.

‘Jess is my little girl and she is getting old now. She just likes to keep us on our toes.’
