Calder Valley SRT members life the climber into the air ambulance

An injured climber was airlifted to hospital after falling from a crag.

Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team went to the man’s aid after being alerted at 4.30pm on Friday following the fall at Caley Crags, near Otley Chevin in West Yorkshire.

The 28-year-old suffered an ankle injury in the incident. Members of the volunteer rescue team gave the man pain relief and then carried him through woodland to a waiting air ambulance.

The following day, the team was in action again when it went to the aid of a mountain biker who had injured his collar bone when he came off his machine near Stoodley Pike above Hebden Bridge in Calderdale.

The cyclist was able to walk off the hill to a waiting ambulance with help from Calder Valley SRT members.
