The woman had a fit near the church in Martindale

A walker was rescued after having a fit on a Lake District fell.

Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was called out today to aid ambulance crew members who had gone to help the 46-year-old woman who had a suspected seizure on the hillside near Martindale Church.

The Great North Air Ambulance flew to the scene, and 10 members of the Patterdale team went to the walker’s aid.

She was treated on the fell before being taken by the ambulance to hospital.

The Patterdale team had earlier been called out to the Angle Tarn area above Hartsop after a boy became separated from his grandfather while walking on the fells.

Search teams went up on to the fell and found the man, from Lincolnshire, who had met the boy while coming down the fell.

The Patterdale team volunteers spent 3½ hours on the two rescues.
