Some members of Oldham Mountain Rescue Team who have been honoured.

Thirty-eight proud and delighted volunteers with Oldham Mountain Rescue Team have been recognised and included alongside other emergency service personnel who are recipients of medals in celebration of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The team's leader Rob Tortoishell said: "Our thanks to Sir Warren Smith KCVO KStJ JP, Her Majesty the Queen’s Lord-Lieutenant of Greater Manchester for attending to present the medals and for his continued support. 

"Congratulations to Her Majesty the Queen from all at Oldham Mountain Rescue on an unprecedented 70 years of service."
