The injured walker was brought to a waiting rescue vehicle near Gaping Gill

A walker was rescued from one of Yorkshire’s Three Peaks after suffering a knee injury in a fall.

The 16-year-old boy slipped into a ditch above Fell Beck on Ingleborough on Thursday while heading up the 723m (2,372ft) mountain.

The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation, whose volunteer members carry out rescues both on the fells and in the caves of the Yorkshire Dales, was called to help the walker about 1.10pm.

He was treated by team members then stretchered down to a waiting team vehicle near Gaping Gill, which took him to an ambulance in Clapham.

The team was also in action on Wednesday when a 17-year-old walker collapsed with severe abdominal pains while on Ingleborough.

He was treated above Southerscales Scars by a small team from the CRO, which then helped take the walker to a waiting ambulance near the Hill Inn at Chapel-le-Dale.
