One of the climbers fell at Stanage Edge

Two climbers were injured in falls in the Peak District this weekend.

A man from London fell from a route on Stanage Edge on Saturday.

Edale Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 5.35pm after the climber fell about 6m (20ft) and reported pain in his chest and pelvis.

He was assessed by team members, placed in a vacuum mattress then stretchered from the site.

The Edale team was called out again today, to a climber who fell about 10m (33ft) at Stoney Middleton, suffering possible chest, spinal and pelvic injuries.

Paramedics treated him at the site before he was stretchered to an ambulance which then transferred him to an air ambulance for a flight to hospital.
