The woman was hit by a falling rock at Gordale Scar

A walker had to be rescued after she was hit by a falling rock on a path in the Yorkshire Dales.

The 53-year-old woman suffered head injuries in the incident at Gordale Scar in Malhamdale.

The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation was called out about 11.45am today and after treatment by paramedics the walker was stretchered by the team to an ambulance waiting at the nearby campsite.

An air ambulance also flew to the site, a limestone gorge with rockfaces 100m high on either side.
