The weather was warm and dry but cloudy.
The North West Ambulance Service asked us to go to the aid of a lady who had slipped whilst walking on Latterbarrow, near Hawkshead. She had sustained an ankle injury.
Two Land Rovers were deployed and a number of Team Members rendezvoused with the main team en route to the location. Members of the public had already stopped to help the casualty and one was waiting to lead us to her. The casualty was given pain relief before her ankle was splinted. She was stretchered about ½ mile to the road where she was handed over to a land ambulance for her onward journey to Furness General Hospital.
11 Members responded to this call out which took 2 hours.
