Grizedale Forest

Incident 8 of 2023:-
23/02/23, 10.56, Grizedale Forest, SD328923
On a cool, sunny day, a man fell from his mountain bike on one of the trails in Grizedale Forest, injuring his ankle, and therefore called for help. Cumbria Police tasked us, and we despatched two vehicles. He was on a good track and we were able to drive right to him. He was assessed, pain relief given, his leg splinted and then put onto our stretcher and into a land rover for the journey back to the Visitor Centre. He was then transferred to his wife’s car who took him to Furness General Hospital for further treatment.
