A walker was rescued from England’s highest mountain in a night-time operation after injuring his leg.
Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team was alerted at 2.10am today, Tuesday, and 14 volunteers went to the aid of the man, in his 60s on Scafell Pike.
The man suffered a knee injury and was unable to carry on walking as he came down from the 978m (3,209ft) fell.
Team members treated the man at Hollow Stones, splinted his leg and he was put on a stretcher for the carry down to Brackenclose in Wasdale.
The incident lasted just over 3½ hours and was Wasdale MRT’s 29th callout this year.
