The women were injured near Easedale Tarn

A rescue team was called out twice to the same Lakeland spot within less than 1½ hours to help injured walkers.

Langdale Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team was alerted at about 2.15pm on Thursday after a woman injured her leg near Easedale Tarn.

While rescuers made their way to the site, an air ambulance managed to land near the scene of the injury and airlift the walker from the fell.

Shortly after the team got back to its Ambleside base, another walker called for help from Easedale.

The woman injured her hip in a fall that happened 300m from the site of the first incident.

Kendal Mountain Rescue Team joined 14 Langdale Ambleside colleagues who treated the walker at the scene and then stretchered her to a team vehicle in the valley. She was taken to the Ambleside base where an ambulance took her to hospital.

The latter rescue took three hours.
