Mountain rescue book competition winners named

Outdoor website Grough has named five winners in a book on mountain safety, something those donning hiking boots may do well to pay attention to when on the hills this winter.

Entitled Call Out Mountain Rescue?, it went to the lucky five drawn out of a hat from the list of those who correctly guessed the name of Mountain Rescue's patron - the soon-to-be married Prince William.

Written by experts from Mountain Rescue, it covers a range of issues about safety and those keen to avoid trouble on the hills may wish to consider how important such matters are.

Good ways of staying safe include getting Ordnance Survey maps to avoid getting lost, while winter jackets can prevent hypothermia on very cold days.

The prince's role in Mountain Rescue is not just titular, as he is now a qualified Mountain Rescue helicopter pilot, based at RAF Valley on Anglesey.

Crews at the location carry out rescues in Snowdonia and the royal couple will live on the island while he is stationed there.
