The man was coming down Plover Hill when he slipped

A walker was helped from a Yorkshire Dales fell by his companions after he slipped and broke his ankle.

Rescuers met the 64-year-old man and his group after they had helped him 3km (2 miles) after the incident on Plover Hill.

The party was coming down the fell, an outlier of Pen-y-ghent, today when the man slipped.

The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation was called out about 2pm and was able to drive to where the injured walker had been taken, near Hull Pot.

He was assessed by paramedics and then driven down to Horton in Ribblesdale where he was transferred to a waiting ambulance.
