Baxenghyll Gorge, scene of the rescue

A walker was rescued from a Yorkshire Dales beauty spot after falling and injuring his face.

The 75-year-old man was on the Ingleton Waterfalls trail today when he slipped while coming down the footpath in Baxenghyll Gorge, suffering deep cuts to his face.

The Cave Rescue Organisation was called out at 5.25pm and went to the man’s aid.

The team doctor treated him at the scene and he was then helped to one of the CRO’s vehicles which took him to the farm at Beezleys where an ambulance was waiting.
