The walker was airlifted from Far Easedale

An injured walker was airlifted from a Lakeland fell in an operation involving three mountain rescue teams.

Langdale Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 8.05pm yesterday after reports that a man had gone walking alone on Helm Crag and not returned.

The man was also reported to have a medical condition.

The Langdale team requested help from Keswick and Kendal Mountain Rescue Teams and Lake District Mountain Rescue Search Dogs.

The walker was found at the top of Far Easedale by members of the Langdale team as the Keswick team began a search, with three dogs, from Wythburn up towards Greenup Edge.

A Sea King helicopter from RAF Boulmer also joined the search for the man and airlifted him to hospital from the site.

Fourteen Langdale Ambleside MRT members, seven from the Keswick team and five from Kendal took part in the rescue, which lasted a total of 5½ hours. Another 14 Kendal team members were on standby at their base in case they were needed.
