The Patterdale team used its boat to reach the injured woman

A rescue team used its boat to reach a walker who suffered a leg injury.

The 67-year-old woman was walking on the path that follows the eastern shore of Ullswater when she suffered the injury today.

Her husband rang police and Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 2.55pm.

It launched its rigid inflatable boat from Glenridding pier and its team members were ferried across the lake to the scene.

A ream spokesperson said: “After assessing the ladies injuries and administering medication for her pain, her leg was splinted and she was carried down to the waiting boat.

“She was transferred back to the team’s base and then by North West Ambulance Service to Cumberland Infirmary, Carlisle.”

The two-hour rescue involved eight volunteer Patterdale team members.
