In this month's 'walk' magazine for ramblers on page 77 there is an interesting article about safety.

There's an app OS Locate that will give you your grid reference. We have loaded it and it is so useful, firstly for safety but also it gives other invaluable information.

It also advised that you register for emergency SMS (emergencySMS.net) this is a free service that allows you to send a text message on emergency bandwidth when a call can't get through.
