The weather was dry, dull and quite muggy, with a light wind.
This time it was the North West Ambulance Service which requested our help as opposed to the police initiating the call out. One of the Great North Air Ambulances was attending a casualty in Tilberthwaite, a tiny ex mining hamlet a few miles north of Coniston. A female walker had slipped on a footpath and had a suspected broken ankle. Assistance was needed to transport the lady to the helicopter which had landed in a field a few hundred meters away. We were able to stretcher her to our landrover and then drive the rest of the way.
She was taken to Furness General Hospital.
11 members attended this callout which took 1 1/4 hours.
