Police locate three people lost on the Wrekin

Police locate three people lost on the Wrekin

Two officers were able to locate a trio of teenagers who had lost their way trying to navigate down the side of the Wrekin in the dark this evening.

Officers PC Thomas and PC McIntosh were guided to the hikers by using the app 'WhatThreeWords' which divides the planet up into small squares and rather than longitude and latitude, gives you three words to pinpoint your location.

This makes it ideal to use for festivals, open spaces and cities alike.

Do you have the app installed?

    Glad they have been found but what a waste of police time, common sense not to go there in the dark
