Increased mountain rescues prompt police warning

POLICE Scotland has issued a warning to people venturing out in the mountains this winter after a number of recent incidents in the Highlands.

Last week mountain rescue teams were called out more than 13 times and police are urging people to consider the dangers of the changeable conditions.

Chief Inspector Neil Anderson said: ‘Unless you are an experienced hillwalker or mountaineer I would advise against venturing into the hills if there is any likelihood of the conditions becoming adverse.
