The man, from Cheshire, had been painting at Grisedale Bridge, Glenridding, when he fell from the ladder at about 10.30am.

The helicopter was called by the North West Ambulance Service. The man was treated at the scene by paramedics and a doctor before being taken to the infirmary, where he was said to be stable on arrival.
