Those who like to go walking in the Brecon Beacons may be pleased to hear that a mountain rescue team serving the area has gained an award.

Dyfed-Powys Police has issued a Certificate of Appreciation to Brecon Mountain Rescue Team for the work they do in helping people who get into trouble on the mountains.

The recognition comes after the team put in over 2,000 hours of voluntary service in the past year.

Commenting on the award, spokesman for the Mountain Rescue team Mark Jones said: "While members willingly volunteer to assist lost and injured people in our community, this year has been a particularly difficult and demanding year and the team members are grateful to have their commitment acknowledged."

He added that the team has a very good working relationship with the local police force.

The Brecon Beacons contains the highest peaks in the southern half of Britain, with the highest being Pen-y-Fan at 2,906 ft.

Other notable mountains in the national park include Waun Rydd, Fan Brycheiniog and Waun Fach.
