A MOUNTAIN rescue team was called out to a teenager who had landed badly following a homemade bicycle 'jump'.

The 18-year-old man was complaining of rib, face, shoulder and back pain after the accident, which occurred on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The Cave Rescue Organisation (CRO) attended the incident on the hillside behind Stackhouse, near Giggleswick, at around 3pm on Sunday.

CRO's assistance had been requested by Yorkshire Ambulance Service paramedics in order to immobilise the casualty and transport him to a road ambulance.

CRO team members were kindly guided to the site by a local quad bike rider.

A spokesman for the team said: "Once ‘packaged’ in the vacuum mattress and placed on a stretcher, the casualty was loaded into a team Land Rover and driven down to the road ambulance, waiting in Stackhouse."

The spokesman wished the injured cyclist a speedy recovery.
