Teenagers found after getting lost in the Black Mountains
FOUR teenage girls have been rescued after getting lost in the Black Mountains.
The teenagers from a South London youth club were found in the early hours of this morning near Blacksmith's Anvil in Capel-y-ffin.
They were taking part in a Duke of Edinburgh Award challenge when they went missing yesterday morning on Rhos Dirion, near Talgarth, amid low cloud and mist.
He said: "It was wet and windy up there and when the girls realised they were lost and had no phone signal they put up a tent for shelter.
“They waited for help to come and because the instructors were able to give us a detailed description of their route it made the search a lot easier.
“We found them at 3:30am. They were cold, tired, frightened and a long way up, but it could have been a lot worse.
“We walked them down off the hill and reunited them with the rest of their party.”
