A walker on the Pennine Way was rescued after suffering a knee injury.

The 60-year-old was walking above Crowden when she injured herself.

Glossop Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 1.25pm on Thursday to aid the woman from Deepcar near Stocksbridge in South Yorkshire.

Team spokesman Peter Jozefczyk said: “With it being midweek we also asked for Oldham and Woodhead teams to attend, we had further information that the casualty’s location was just to the North of Laddow rocks on the Pennine Way.

“With Oldham team first to arrive at the scene, the casualty was being treated by air an ambulance paramedic, which just meant a short carry to the helicopter.”

The injured walker was flown to hospital in Huddersfield, and her walking companions were accompanied by team members back down to Crowden.
