A critically injured cyclist was airlifted from a Lake District pass after crashing into a wall.

The man, in his 40s, came off his bike on the Honister Pass yesterday.

The Great North Air Ambulance was scrambled at 1.10pm and flew to the site.

The cyclist, from Liverpool, was treated at the scene by the helicopter’s paramedics and an ambulance paramedic before being flown to Royal Preston Hospital for further treatment, where his condition was described a stable.

In July a mountain biker was critically injured after crashing on the pass, between Borrowdale and Buttermere.

The 28-year-old was airlifted to hospital in Preston after suffering head and chest injuries.
