A walker was airlifted from a Yorkshire Dales fell after slipping and injuring herself.

The 43-year-old woman slipped on frozen ground while coming down from Park Fell, north of Ingleborough today.

A team spokesperson said: “CRO attended and, following treatment by paramedics and one of the team doctors, stretchered the casualty a short distance down to an air ambulance.”

It was the team’s eighth rescue of the year.
