Five teenagers were rescued from Dartmoor after storm Katie hit last night.

Volunteers from Dartmoor Search and Rescue Ashburton were called out at 23:45 after the group got into difficulty north west of the Avon Dam Reservoir.

The teenagers were found in an emergency shelter they had been carrying after DSRT located them following a tracking device they had been carrying.

The teenagers were checked over and taken off the moor.

Some of the team had a later evening when one of the Land Rovers broke down after developing an electrical fault.

After a temporary fix, the last of the team left the moor and headed to bed.
