A rescue operation has begun after a group of people, including a number of teenagers, became trapped in a cave in North Yorkshire by rising water.

Police said the group, including eight teenagers and three adults, became trapped in Lower Long Church cave in the Ingleton area.

Officers said the group were understood to be "safe and well" but had to wait for the water to subside.

A coordination centre has been set up at Settle College.

Young cavers are led to safety

A group of cavers, including eight teenagers, have been led to safety after becoming trapped by rising water, police said.

North Yorkshire Police were called just before 1pm following reports that 11 people had become stuck in Lower Long Churn cave, near Selside in the Ingleton area, due to rising water.

The group, which included eight teenagers and three adults from the Oldham area, had to remain in the cave until about 6pm when the water levels dropped sufficiently for rescuers to enter and bring them to safety.

"Precautionary medical checks were carried out by paramedics and all those involved were declared fit and well," a police spokesman said.

A respite centre was set up at Settle College where concerned family members gathered as they waited for the water levels to drop before the rescue effort could be carried out, the spokesman added

Jinxi - Approx 5' 10" - 6', bald head, penchant for Black Sheep beer, had the need to show everyone that he could get through "the wheel" in the Old Hill Inn. I think he lived out Bentham way.
