A LAKE District mountain rescue team was mobilised six times in just two days.

Langdale/Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team (LAMRT) headed out to the first of these incidents on Friday morning, evacuating a man who had slipped and sustained a suspected ankle fracture on Orrest Head, which overlooks Windermere.

At around 1.15pm that day, a woman slipped and suffered a suspected sprain or fracture to her ankle on Nab Scar, above Rydal Water. She was treated and stretchered down.

At 3.30pm, team members were called out to Pike Howe, Great Langdale, to a woman who had received a 'serious fracture/dislocation' after slipping. This was treated by an LAMRT paramedic and the casualty was evacuated.

Saturday's first callout was to another ankle injury - on Wansfell, by Ambleside. The casualty, a young woman, was evacuated.

At around 6.15pm that day, the team was notified of a man who had reported himself lost in the Easdale Tarn area, near Grasmere. He later made his own way down.

And around an hour later LAMRT was called to help evacuate a woman who had sustained a lower leg injury near Angle Tarn, Great Langdale.
