FILMING of a television documentary on missing people was interrupted after Patterdale Mountain Rescue were called to assist a man who had injured his ankle.
At 12.30pm today (Tuesday October 29), Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team were called by the North West Ambulance Service to assist a man who had fallen and dislocated his ankle on Hallin Fell.
At the time of the callout some members of the team were assisting the North West Police Diving unit with the production of an independent television documentary on Ullswater.
The team and police were recreating the search for a man who was reported missing in 2012 and has not yet been found.
Those team members who were on the lake at the time went directly to the scene and were joined by other members a few minutes later.
The team administered pain relief to the man, who was in severe pain, and then transported him by stretcher to a waiting ambulance at the Hause, above Howtown. He was then transferred to hospital in Carlisle.
Fifteen team members were involved in the rescue for over two hours.
