The early evening was clear but cold, and it was becoming icy underfoot.
CUMPOL (Cumbria Police) asked us to go to the assistance of a female walker who, due to a medical condition, was unable to continue on her descent of Coniston Old Man.
After speaking to her partner we were advised that they could make it to the Walna Scar track from Goats Water. They were well equipped and warm, and would wait for us at the junction.
Two vehicles left the base and were able to drive most of the way to the location. On reaching the Casualty on foot, she was made comfortable on the stretcher and taken to the Land Rover. She was then driven to their car and once settled, they were able to follow the Land Rover back down the icy road into the village, when they went on their way.
17 Team members attended this incident which took 1 hr 20 minutes
