Walna Scar track

Incident 1 of 2023:-
01/01/2023, 14.47, Walna Scar track, SD288971
A cool and damp New Year’s Day saw a lady slip on wet grass after descending Coniston Old Man. She hurt her ankle. Initially, the full team was called out, but this was downgraded once contact was made because a strong passer-by was able to carry her part of the way from Windy Gap to the Fell Gate Car Park on Walna Scar. A small team went and assessed her, gave pain relief and applied a splint to the ankle. Her party then took her to Furness General Hospital for further treatment.
11 volunteer members responded and the incident took 1 hour 20 minutes.
