The woman slipped near the summit of Pen-y-ghent

A walker was airlifted from one of Yorkshire’s Three Peaks after slipping and breaking her ankle.

The 60-year-old was coming down from 694m (2,277ft) Pen-y-ghent yesterday, Sunday, when the incident happened near the summit.

The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation was alerted at 3.30pm and members and paramedics treated the woman before stretchering her a short distance to an air ambulance which flew her from the fell.

The woman’s walking companions were brought down from the hill in a CRO vehicle.

The incident was the team’s 54th callout of the year.
