The weather was dry, sunny and without the usual breeze.

The team was called out to the aid of a mountain biker who had fallen off his bike along what is known as the Coffin Trail in this area. He had sustained an injury to his shoulder, probably a dislocation.

Two land rovers were deployed from the base, whilst other members made their own way there. The casualty was given pain relief and his arm put in a sling for comfort. The gentleman was then stretchered to the waiting North West Air Ambulance helicopter which had landed in a suitable location further down near Strawberry Gardens. He was flown to Lancaster Royal Infirmary.

14 team members attended this incident which took 2 ¼ hours.
