A walker was airlifted from a Lake District fell after suffering a suspected broken leg.

The 54-year-old from Staffordshire was walking yesterday on a path above Easedale Tarn when she slipped and injured herself.

Langdale Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team was called out shortly before 3pm and the Great North Air Ambulance Pride of Cumbria flew to the scene.

The walker was treated at the scene before being flown from the fell to a waiting ambulance which took her to the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle for further treatment.
