The mountain biker was injured in the Kentmere valley

An injured mountain biker was rescued after her companion helped her part of the way down a fellside.

Kendal Mountain Rescue Team went to the aid of the woman after being alerted by police yesterday, Saturday, at 4pm.

The biker had injured her hip in the incident in the Kentmere valley.

A spokesperson for the rescue team said: “Fortunately, her companion had helped her some distance down the fell before going ahead to call for help from the first house he came to in Kentmere.

“We found them without difficulty at Hallow Bank Quarter where the casualty was treated by team members before being stretchered to one of our Land Rovers.”

The team vehicle took the woman to Barley Bridge, Staveley, where it was met by an ambulance which took the cyclist to hospital.

The team also took the pair’s mountain bikes to Kentmere village.
