Man airlifted to hospital from Cumbrian fells

A 67-year-old man was airlifted to hospital after falling near the summit of Great Gable and injuring his leg.

Members of the Great North Air Ambulance crew helped Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team to access and treat the injured man, who sustained a knee injury.

An RAF Seaking helicopter, which was also in the area, then flew the man, from Derby, to the Cumberland Infirmary, Carlisle.

The call came in at 4pm on Saturday. His injuries were said to be non life-threatening and his condition was stable on arrival at hospital.

How can it? New law keeps giving police more to do, while police numbers are being cut. Madness!

There's no evidence of law preventing use of mobile phones in cars working, so why would it?
