An amateur radio enthusiast helped rescue a girl who was having an epileptic seizure while camping in a remote part of Exmoor.
Mike Everett was scanning the airwaves at his home 60 miles away in Bristol when he heard a mayday call.
He was able to direct paramedics to the area after one of the camping party used a radio set to call for help as there was no mobile phone signal.
The 12-year-old girl was taken to hospital and has since fully recovered.
Mr Everett said he was listening to his radio when he heard the word “ambulance” and knew “by the tone of the man’s voice that he needed help straightaway”.
