A Mountain Rescue team came to the aid of a couple, who were out walking when one slipped and injured their wrist.

Keswick Mountain Rescue Team were called out to Outerside at approximately 12.36 on July 5 to help the casualty off the summit. 

After calling the emergency services the team sent out two vehicles.

One approached from Braithwaite and parked below Stile End, whilst the other made its way to Force Crag Mine in Coledale.

The team met the party on the summit of Outerside, and after administering pain relief the casualty was splinted and quickly sledged down to Force Crag Mine.

From there, they were taken to their vehicle and they made their own way to the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle hospital for further treatment.
