A runner was airlifted to hospital after suffering serious injuries when she fell in the Lake District.

The woman, in her 60s, was running on the shore path of Grasmere on Sunday when she fell.

The Great North Air Ambulance Service’s Pride of Cumbria helicopter was scrambled from its base near Penrith and flew to the site near the lake.

A GNAAS spokesperson said: “On arrival on scene the aircrew doctor and paramedic assessed and treated the patient for chest and hip injuries before flying her to hospital.”

The woman, from Kirkby Lonsdale in Cumbria, was in a stable condition when she arrived at the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle.
