The weather was warm though the ground was damp under foot after persistent rain in the morning.
The team were contacted by Cumbria Police (CUMPOL) to an incident on the Cumbria Way where a lady had slipped on wet ground and injured her ankle. She was unable to continue.
A full team call out was initiated and 3 vehicles left the base to attend to the casualty. We were soon on scene with the casualty. She was treated for injury and stretchered back to the rescue vehicles.
On returning to base she was treated by paramedics from the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS), before being taken to Furness General Hospital in Barrow.
In total 15 team members attended this rescue which lasted just over 2 hours.
