An injured woman was surprised to find almost 30 rescuers coming to her aid after she slipped on an icy Peak District path.

The 50-year-old member of a mountaineering club broke her ankle near Cutthroat Bridge east of Ladybower Reservoir on Saturday.

Edale and Derby Mountain Rescue Teams were taking part in a joint training exercise nearby and their members were quickly on the scene.

An Edale team spokesperson said: “With both teams available the lady was surprised to see nearly 30 rescuers arrive to help.

“She was given pain relief before her fractured and dislocated ankle was put back in place and she was carried back to the road.”

The woman was then handed to an ambulance crew and taken to hospital in Sheffield for further treatment.
