Initially the exact location of the cyclist and intended route was unknown. #SARLOC was successfully used by North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team and ourselves to fix the cyclist's location, identified as being on the Lakeside Way, east of Gowanburn.

The cyclist was treated on scene by NEAS and evacuated using the Hazardous Area Response Team's ATV with Mountain Rescue's assistance.

Whilst responding to the above incident, both MRTs were also requested to assist Northumbria Police in locating a vulnerable male. The male was successfully located near to Kielder Dam by Mountain Rescue members.
