The theory of non-linear tearing modes has been extended to include the effects of rotation and interaction with a resistive wall. The time dependent solution of the resulting equations shows a spatial locking of the mode similar to that observed in tokamak experiments. Time dependent numerical calculations show that the model can explain in a qualitative way the overall frequency evolution of mode locking and the radial magnetic field behaviour observed on JET.
