Major Dartmoor rescue exercise

First training session for months

Emergency services have joined Dartmoor Search and Rescue volunteers - an emergency service in its own right - on the first major exercise on Dartmoor for some time.

The pandemic has reduced normal training patters, but without regular exercises, the danger is that an uncoordinated approach to real-life incidents costs lives.

Coronavirus hasn't stopped people going missing, or having life-crises such as depression. This large exercise is designed to make finding people who in trouble on Dartmoor easier.

The film report is from BBC Spotlight.
