A walker was rescued after injuring herself in a fall in the Brecon Beacons.

The woman was high above the Neuadd Reservoir, south of Pen y Fan, when she fell and injured her leg.

Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team was called out at 3.15pm yesterday, Sunday and responded to the call for help along with members of Brecon and Longtown Mountain Rescue Teams and the Western Beacons Mountain Search and Rescue Team.

A Central Beacons spokesperson said hill parties from the teams made their way to the scene and treated the walker before carrying her to a waiting ambulance.

The spokesperson said members of the walker’s party made the correct decision to phone police and ask for mountain rescue and the casualty was evacuated in testing conditions.

Central Beacon MRT’s incident controller Mark Moran added: “We had a phenomenal turnout of 35 members from three teams and Search and Rescue Dogs Association dogs on an extremely wet and unpleasant afternoon in the beacons.

“The casualty and companion did absolutely everything right, phoning it in and staying where they were and the callout was a great success.”
