Two walkers were rescued after injuring themselves on Lake District fells.

A 57-year-old woman from Langholm, Dumfries and Galloway, was on Little Mell Fell above Ullswater yesterday when she fell and was unable to continue.

Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 11.10am and 11 volunteer team members went to her aid.

A team spokesperson said: “She was treated on scene, given pain relief, and then carried by stretcher to a waiting ambulance.”

While the team was dealing with the injured walker, it was called to a second injured walker on Hartsop above Howe.

The Great North Air Ambulance flew to the scene where a woman in her 40s from Long Eaton in Nottinghamshire had injured her leg.

A GNAA spokesperson said: “She was treated at the scene by the paramedic crew from the GNAA before being relocated to a land vehicle.”
