Mountain rescuers ended up on a trek to Pasture Bottom for the second time in two days after a walker fell and twisted his knee.

Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was called out today about 1pm and was joined by colleagues from the Langdale Ambleside team in the rescue of the 79-year-old Kendal man.

The walker fell while on a trip up Stoney Cove Pike.

Eight Patterdale and 14 Langdale volunteers went to the man’s aid and treated him at the scene before stretchering him down to Pasture Bottom near Hartsop.

The valley was the scene of a rescue yesterday of a 59-year-old woman from Carnforth, Lancashire, who injured her ankle while walking.

Today’s rescue lasted five hours.
