Walker hurt on Great Gable

A woman has broken her arm after slipping and falling whilst out walking on Great Gable.

The Great North Air Ambulance was asked to help the 52-year-old woman because of the remote location.

The woman was with members of her family and was returning from the summit of Great Gable at around 2.15pm when she slipped and fell.

She was airlifted by the helicopter to Buttermere, where she was then taken to hospital for treatment.

The Pride of Cumbria air ambulance was assisting Keswick Mountain Rescue Team in the rescue.
