A man was airlifted from a North Yorkshire beauty spot after he fell while scrambling.

The Grassington-based Upper Wharfedale Fell Rescue Association was called out to Brimham Rocks at 8.50am on Saturday following a request for help from ambulance staff.

The man injured his ankle in the fall at the site, near Pateley Bridge.

A UWFRA spokesperson said: “Members assisted the ambulance crew splinting and packaging the casualty and then stretchered him to the air ambulance.”

The two-hour rescue involved 10 volunteers from the Upper Wharfedale team.
