Twenty art students and teachers were rescued after getting stuck in snow in Hebden Bridge.

The Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team was called to the incident on Saturday when the group, who were visiting from London, got into trouble while attempting to drive their mini buses up the track at Hebden Hey Scout Centre.

The vehicles became stuck and access was blocked in both directions.

Eight team members attended the scene and assisted to extract the vehicles and managed to winch them to safety on the main road.
