Mountain biker airlifted after collapsing

A mountain biker from the USA was airlifted to hospital after he collapsed on fells east of Ullswater.

The 47-year-old man, from Houston, Texas, was taken ill on the High Street range around 5pm on Friday.

Penrith Mountain Rescue Team and the Pride of Cumbria air ambulance attended, and the aircrew doctor and paramedic assessed the man for what they describe as a “serious medical condition”.

He was transferred to the helicopter and flown to the Cumberland Infirmary, Carlisle, in 10 minutes. He was said to be “stable” on arrival.

These days I don't think they're worth the expense

Love them - but they shouldn't be switched on until December
