It was a dry afternoon with a mixture of sunny intervals and cloud.

The Team was called to help a female runner who had been participating in an orienteering event on Claife Heights, when she slipped on rock injuring her ankle.

The first land rover quickly set off, whilst other team members made their own way to the area due to their close proximity.  They rendezvoused with a gentleman at Near Sawrey who directed them as best he could, as to the whereabouts of the casualty. The North West Air Ambulance was also assisting with this rescue and a Paramedic was with the team when the lady was located at Scale Ivy Intakes, at the southern end of Claife Heights. She was given pain relief for a displaced and suspected broken ankle, and airlifted to hospital.

12 members responded to this incident which took 3 ½ hours.
