The woman injured herself on Roseberry Topping

The woman injured herself on Roseberry Topping

A walker had to be rescued from a Cleveland hill when she injured herself after taking photographs of the sunset.

Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team was alerted about 12.30am on Saturday by ambulance staff to help the woman on Roseberry Topping in the North York Moors national park.

A team spokesperson said: “The walker had been on Roseberry Topping taking pictures of the sun set when she tripped and was suspected to have broken her ankle.

“This happened in the late evening and she managed with the help of some passers-by to make her way slowly down the path back towards the car park.

“She managed to get halfway down but could not manage the rest due to her injury. When the team arrived we liaised with the ambulance paramedic and they requested us to carry the female to our team vehicle which was at the summer house.

“The young lady was packaged up and carried about 500m to the team Land Rover where she was transported to the county ambulance which was waiting close by.

“We wish the young lady a speedy recovery as it was her final day in Teesside as she was due to travel home for the summer from university.”

The two-hour rescue involved 18 volunteer members of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team.
