The girl was walking down from The Knott

Walkers with ankle injuries continued to keep a Lake District mountain rescue team busy over the past few days, as members turned out for the fourth such callout yesterday.

A 17-year-old girl from Mansfield in Nottinghamshire was coming down from the Knott when she hurt her ankle.

Team members, recovering from their 50th anniversary celebrations, were called out about 6.25pm to the incident near the Hayeswater dam.

A spokesperson said: “The girl was treated on scene and then stretchered to one of the team’s waiting Land Rover ambulances. She was then taken to Patterdale MRT’s base and transferred to an ambulance for onward transfer to hospital.”

The volunteers of the Patterdale team rescued three walkers with ankle injuries in separate incidents on Thursday.

Yesterday’s incident, which involved 12 team members, was its 40th of the year.

Members past and present attended a celebration of its half century at Patterdale Hall on Saturday. The spokesperson said: “The team would like to thank Barngates Brewery and Cumbrian Legendary Ales for their very kind support.”
