Mountain rescue teams swung into action after a woman got into difficulty in the Lake District.

Wasdale and Keswick team members got the distress call at 11.17am on Sunday near to the Sty Head pass, an area north of Scafell Pike.

About 11 members of the Keswick team took part in the rescue lasting two hours 43 minutes - while a number of Wasdale team members were out for “much longer”.

A spokesman for Keswick said: “A 19-year-old had fallen and injured her ankle.

“The group she was with attempted to help her down to Seathwaite but they realised this would not be possible and so called for help.

“It was fortunate that Wasdale MRT had set off for a training exercise and were relatively near to the casualty site.

“After the ankle was treated and pain relief provided the Wasdale team agreed to stretcher the casualty down towards Seathwaite.”
