FIVE TEENAGE BOYS were rescued from a mountain in Co Antrim last night, after they became lost.

A PSNI helicopter was dispatched to the scene at Agangarrive Mountain in Cushendall after the alarm was raised, shortly after 7pm last evening.

The teenagers were taking part in a Duke of Edinburgh Award trip. Similar to the Gaisce Award here, participants can choose to develop their skills in planning, training for, and completing an ‘adventurous journey’ as part of the programme.

All five teenage boys were located safe and well, the PSNI say.

They were airlifted from the mountain by the helicopter.
