A missing Derbyshire woman has been found after a 20-hour search involving more than 100 mountain rescue volunteers in the Peak District.

Buxton, Kinder, Derby, Glossop and Woodhead teams searched "a vast area", including dense woodland and water.

The alarm was raised when the vulnerable 52-year-old's car was found near Errwood Reservoir late on Sunday.

She was located about 2km (1.2 miles) away, north of Fernilee Reservoir, on Monday evening.

The woman, from Buxton, was found in an open grassed area. She was treated by a team doctor and taken to hospital.
