[22] MINE SEARCH – Lanner, 20/08/2018

As part of an ongoing Police investigation, the Mines Section were requested to drop a shaft in the Lanner area, reported to be just 30-40 feet deep. Two team search managers were joined by five members of the Mines Section, rigging up a system to safely allow two members and an ‘edge-man’ to approach and drop the shaft, finding that it was actually 70m deep, dropping further into water to an unknown depth. Just one item was retrieved from the shaft, although further investigation found that this wasn’t related to the case in question.
