Hallin Fell, scene of one of the rescues

Two walkers were rescued after suffering injuries in separate incidents on Lakeland fells.

Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was called to help a 35-year-old man who slipped on wet and muddy grass while coming down Hallin Fell near Howtown.

The walker, from Shrewsbury, broke his leg in the slip and was treated at the scene by rescue team members and ambulance paramedics before being stretchered to the waiting Pride of Cumbria Air Ambulance which flew him to the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle.

A spokesperson for the Patterdale team said the walker was also very cold and wet.

Cockermouth Mountain Rescue Team went to the aid of a woman who suffered a suspected broken ankle in a slip while walking in Mosedale, near Mellbreak, west of Crummock Water.

A total of 24 team members took part in the rescue. The woman was taken in the team’s vehicle to a waiting ambulance at Kirkstile, which took her to West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven.
