A walker was rescued after injuring her knee in a fall in the Lake District.

The 70-year-old woman from Bolton slipped while walking in the Buttermere area.

Cockermouth Mountain Rescue Team was called out today about 6.40pm and a team member who lives in the area met the woman and helped her to Gatesgarth, where an ambulance met her.

The incident, which lasted half an hour, involved 20 volunteer team members who were subsequently stood down. It was the third callout for the Cockermouth team over the Easter holiday weekend.
