A walker was rescued after falling and injuring herself on a Lake District fell.

The woman, in her 50s, was walking near Lanty’s Tarn above Glenridding today when she slipped, injuring her leg and back.

Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 7.10pm and treated the woman at the scene before stretchering her to one of its Land Rovers.

She was then taken to the team’s rescue centre in Patterdale, where an ambulance took her for further treatment at Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle.

The two-hour rescue involved 11 volunteer Patterdale MRT members.
