Mountain rescuers were called out to a walker who injured their leg, the second callout of its kind in three days in what has been a busy short period recently for the unit.

Members of the Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team (PMRT) were simultaneously tasked by both the Northwest Ambulance Service (NWAS) and Cumbria police to help a woman who slipped walking up Fusedale with her husband on February 5 at 1.16pm.

15 team members travelled to the casualty and gave her pain relief and splinted her ankle.

She was then put in a stretcher and carried to the waiting Land Rovers.

She was then driven to Pooley Bridge where she was handed over to an ambulance.
