It was a damp afternoon with a mixture of light drizzle and sunshine.
A female walker had slipped on wet ground whilst walking on Latterbarrow, a small fell east of Hawkshead, covered by bracken and woodland. She had sustained an injury to her ankle.
Two land rovers were deployed. The lady was given pain relief and her ankle was then splinted before being carried down to our land rover for the short drive to the roadside where an ambulance was waiting. She was transferred over for her onward journey to Furness General Hospital.
15 Team personnel responded to this call out as well as one team member from Woodhead Mountain Rescue in Derbyshire. The incident took 2 ½ hours.
