A woman was treated and rescued by air ambulance staff after she injured her ankle while walking on Hadrian’s Wall.

The 26-year-old woman from Newcastle upon Tyne fell while walking near Housesteads today.

The Great North Air Ambulance flew to the scene, which was more than a mile from the nearest road. The helicopter’s doctor and crew treated her at the site and then transferred her to the road.

An ambulance then took her to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Newcastle for further treatment.
