The icy and snowy weather over recent days has meant that the Brecon Mountain Rescue Team have been very busy.

They’ve attended a number of call outs, including a dog rescue, and also assisting Police and Ambulance crews that struggled to reach a collision in the snowy weather on Saturday.

A spokesperson for Brecon Mountain Rescue said:


“The team were called to a dog that had managed to get themselves stuck at a dam in Nant y Moch.  

“The dog was rescued successfully and we avoided anyone putting themselves in danger.  

“This little doggie was very happy to be back with their owners! Big thanks to Statkraft who helped us get access to the doggie in distress.”


“The team were called to a young casualty who had fallen off their horse and sustained an arm injury.  

“They were treated by our casualty carer and handed over to our colleagues from the Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust.  

“We wish them a speedy recovery.”


“We were called to assist Dyfed-Powys Police and ambulance who were unable to reach a road traffic accident due to poor road conditions of ice and snow. 

“Two cold people were taken to safety.”

Brecon Mountain Rescue Team is an emergency service staffed entirely by volunteers and funded by donations. Working from the Brecon Beacons National Park in the South, to Welshpool in the North East and Machynlleth in the North West.
