An injured walker was rescued from a Lakeland fell in major night-time operation lasting nine hours.
The woman was attempting a solo round of the Mosedale Horseshoe when she suffered ankle injuries on Pillar.
Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team was alerted at about 9.10pm yesterday, Saturday, and requested the help of the neighbouring Cockermouth team due to the location of the incident.
A Wasdale MRT spokesperson said: “It took some considerable searching to find the casualty, 100m down towards Pillar Rock from Pillar summit.
“After being warmed and given analgesia the casualty was able to walk with assistance back up to the summit. From the summit she was stretchered down to Wasdale Head via Wind Gap, an evacuation that took three hours over challenging terrain.”
Sixteen Wasdale and about 12 Cockermouth MRT members took part in the rescue, which ended about 6.10am.
