RESCUERS were called out after a fell runner twisted his knee on Snarker Pike near Rydal.

The man, who had slipped on damp ground, was coronavirus-risk assessed, treated by team members and evacuated after the incident at around 11.30am on Saturday.

A Langdale/Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team spokesman said: “Fortunately his injury was not serious and the service of our overstretched ambulance service was not required for transport to hospital.”
