A walker was rescued after injuring himself in a slip on one of Yorkshire’s Three Peaks.
The 62-year-old was walking on Pen-y-ghent today, Wednesday, when he broke his ankle.
The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation was called out at 11.05am and went to the man’s aid.
A team spokesperson said: “A walker slipped on wet ground near the finger post high above Hull Pot and fractured his ankle.
“Following treatment by CRO the casualty was stretchered a short distance to a team vehicle for transport down off the hill and transfer to a road ambulance waiting in Horton in Ribblesdale.”
The incident was the team’s 61st of the year.
