A walker was airlifted from a Lake District mountain after injuring herself.

The 62-year-old from Peterborough was walking on High Street today when she slipped and suffered an ankle injury.

Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 2.40pm, along with the Penrith team, and the Great North Air Ambulance was scrambled.

While the two mountain rescue teams were assembling, the helicopter managed to reach the scene and the walker was treated by the aircraft’s doctor and paramedic before being airlifted from the fell and flown to Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle.
