A walker was airlifted from a Lake District fell after breaking her arm.

The 52-year-old woman was coming down from Great Gable with family members when she slipped and fell.

Keswick Mountain Rescue Team was called out and the Great North Air Ambulance’s Pride of Cumbria helicopter was scrambled from its Penrith base.

A GNAA spokesperson said: “Due to the remote location the aircraft was sent and we were assisted by Keswick MRT members.

“The patient was flown to a land ambulance which was waiting in Buttermere for her onward journey to hospital.”
