The BBC reports that "Andrew Evans of Western Beacons Mountain Rescue Team said that a rescue helicopter located the missing groups and every child has either made their way off the mountain or are on their way down".

The Welsh Ambulance Service said: "26 patients were taken to Ystradgynlais Community Hospital for a precautionary check-up. None of their injuries are believed to be serious."

Earlier today a desperate search and rescue mission was launched after the group went missing. Mountain teams searched the area after they  got lost in clouds while doing their Duke of Edinburgh Award at around 1pm this afternoon.

The Duke of Edinburgh award is a programme for young people providing a challenging and rewarding programme of personal development. There are three award levels from age 14, 15 or 16 plus that may give an indication of the age of the missing children:​
