Holme Fell

Incident 5 of 2022:-
22/03/2022, 15.07, Holme Fell, NY319007
It was a lovely spring day, and a couple were on a long walk when the woman fell on the path down from Holme Fell, and twisted her ankle badly. Their call for help initially went to another team, who transferred it to us.
We despatched two Land Rovers to Yew Tree Tarn, and walked up the fell to her location. She was assessed, given pain relief, splinted and then stretchered down to our Land Rovers. We then drove her to our base for handover to a land ambulance.
10 volunteer team members attended, and the incident took 2 hours.
