Windy Gap track

Incident 29 of 2020:-
30/08/2020, 13:00, Windy Gap track, SD28469780
The weather was fine and the Bank Holiday crowds were out on the fells. A woman, stopping for lunch, injured her ankle crossing a beck, and her husband phoned for help. Cumbria Police called us to assist, so we sent two Land Rovers up the hill. Fortunately, the pair were next to a track that we could drive on, so extraction was relatively easy. She was assessed, given pain relief, splinted and stretchered the short distance to our Land Rover ambulance, then driven to our base to transfer to a road ambulance. This incident involved 9 volunteer team members, plus 1 from LAMRT, and lasted 1.5hrs.
