The walker injured herself near the summit of Scafell Pike

Two mountain rescue teams went to the aid of a walker injured on England’s highest mountain.

The woman stumbled and fell near the summit of Scafell Pike today, Saturday, and injured her head.

Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team was called out at about 1.30pm and requested help from the neighbouring Duddon and Furness team.

The woman was treated at the scene and then carried down to the valley in Wasdale in a rescue that took more than five hours.

Eighteen volunteers from the Wasdale team took part in the rescue, which was the team’s 39th this year.
