Woman dies after being found lodged in Cumbrian beck

A woman who was airlifted to hospital after being rescued from a stream has died.

Emergency services were called to Glenridding at 7.05pm after reports that a woman had been found in a stream.

The 49-year-old was found lodged in Glencoyne Beck and police, mountain rescue teams, Cumbria Fire & Rescue and doctors tried to save the woman.

She was airlifted to Wythenshawe Hospital in Manchester at about 8.55pm last night in a Royal Navy Sea King helicopter but tragically she died earlier this morning.

A police spokeswoman said that at this time the circumstances of the incident are not thought to be suspicious.

Cumbria police are working to formally identify the woman and support her family.

Mountain rescue team members from Patterdale, Keswick and Ambleside led the rescue efforts along with four appliances and a special rescue unit from Cumbria Fire & Rescue.

Anyone with any information on the incident is asked to contact Cumbria police on 101.
