A walker was stretchered from a Lake District fell after injuring her foot in a slip.

The 23-year-old Chinese visitor slipped while coming down a grassy slope on Sticks Pass today.

Keswick Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 2.40pm. A team spokesperson said: “Her friend came down to Legburthwaite to raise the alarm, as there was some difficulty establishing exactly where the incident was.

“The team went with two vehicles, and made their way up the hill, where it was obvious that the young lady would have to be stretchered off.

“She was brought down to Legburthwaite where a North West Ambulance Service ambulance was waiting to take her to Carlisle for treatment.”

The rescue took almost 2½ hours and involved 14 volunteer team members.
