A search operation is under way to find a missing man at a reservoir near Tintwistle.

Emergency services were called to Torside reservoir at around 10pm on Thursday evening (22 July) to reports of a man in the water. 

Residents reported seeing a large number of emergency service vehicles travelling through Glossop and Hadfield around that time. 

The fire service say the incident has now been handed over to Derbyshire Constabulary. 

A spokesperson for Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "At 10.10pm yesterday, 22 July 2021, crews from Glossop, Buxton and Greater Manchester’s Hyde Fire Station, attended Torside Reservoir, alongside Emergency Service partners, after reports of a man in the water.

"The incident has now been handed over to Derbyshire police.

"No further information is currently available."
