The path leading past the derelict shooting hut on Ingleborough

A walker was rescued after breaking his ankle on one of Yorkshire’s Three Peaks.

The 52-year-old man slipped on mud near the derelict shooting hut on Ingleborough’s eastern flanks on Friday, suffering the suspected fracture.

With help from his companions, he was able to continue down the hillside to the junction of Sulber Nick and Clapham Lane tracks.

The Cave Rescue Organisation was called out about 2.40pm. A team spokesperson said: “CRO members immobilised the leg, then took him in a team vehicle to Horton in Ribblesdale, where he was transferred to a road ambulance.”
