The walker was rescued using Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team's boat

A mountain rescue team used its boat to reach an injured walker on a lakeside path.

Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 2.25pm on Wednesday after a report that a 55-year-old man from Bedford had fallen and injured his head and knee.

Eight team members launched the rescue boat from Glenridding Pier to reach the walker, who was on the Ullswater shore path between Sandwick and Patterdale.

A team spokesperson said: “The man was assessed and assisted onto a stretcher before being lowered a short distance from the path to the lake shore.

“Following transport by boat back to Glenridding he was handed over to a county ambulance for onward transport to hospital.”
