The Corridor Route links Sty Head with the route to Scafell Pike's summit

A walker taking part in a challenge event was airlifted from a Lakeland fell after injuring herself in a stumble.

The 27-year-old was on the Corridor Route, which leads from Sty Head towards Scafell Pike, when she injured her hip on Saturday.

She was unable to bear weight and called for help.

A spokesperson for Keswick Mountain Rescue Team said some misunderstanding as to whose area the incident was in – Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team was also alerted – but the Keswick team sent a Land Rover with six team members about 4.35pm to Seathwaite in Borrowdale.

An air ambulance also flew to the site.

The Keswick team spokesperson said: “There were also two team members already on the hill, and in the event, they were able to assist the crew of the air ambulance to load the casualty for transport to West Cumberland Hospital.”

A total of 13 Keswick team members were involved in the rescue.
