An elderly woman had to be rescued by Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) yesterday afternoon (Wednesday).

Eighteen team members were called to a property in Cragg Vale, where the woman was in the upper floor of the house.

Due to the awkward location of the propery, access was restricted for the ambulance - CVRST members managed to evacuate the woman down the hillside to the road where she was put in the care of paramedics.
