The walker suffered a leg injury crossing a beck on Blea Moor

A walker was stretchered from a fell after suffering a suspected broken leg.

The 57-year-old walker was crossing a beck near the Blea Moor Aqueduct on Whernside in the Yorkshire Dales when he slipped yesterday, Wednesday.

The Cave Rescue Organisation, whose volunteers carry out rescues both on the fells and in the caves of the Dales, was called out at 4.05pm.

Paramedics treated the walker at the scene and he was then carried a short distance to a CRO vehicle which took him to a waiting ambulance in Ingleton.

The rescue was the team’s 30th of the year.
