A mountain biker was rescued after injuring herself on a downhill section of a popular course.

Three mountain rescue teams went to the rider’s aid after she suffered a suspected dislocated shoulder in a fall while on the Cwmcarn course in south Wales.

Rescuers were alerted today at 2.45pm. Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team members, some of whom were already on the hills for a training exercise, were joined by colleagues from Brecon and Longtown MRTs at the site, north-west of Newport.

Rescuers treated the woman at the scene before taking her to a waiting ambulance which transported her to hospital.
