PATTERDALE Mountain Rescue Team was called out to a walker who had injured her ankle.

The team were alerted to the casualty - who was located on Arthurs Pike at 2pm on Monday by Cumbria Police.

A spokesperson for PMRT said: "The casualty had been running with her partner when she went over on her ankle. They tried to get off the fell by themselves initially, however when the pain was too much they requested assistance by calling Cumbria Police.

"15 team members and two team landrovers responded. The casualty location was accessible by Land Rover and the first team members were on the scene quickly. The casualty was treated on scene by the team doctor and her ankle injury was stabilised. She was then transported in the Land Rover off the fell for onward travel to the hospital. The rescue lasted two hrs."
