A walker was rescued after injuring her back when she fell 10ft on a lakeside path.

The 65-year-old from Leeds in West Yorkshire was walking on the shore path at Buttermere when she slipped and fell about 3m on to rocks at the edge of the lake.

Cockermouth Mountain Rescue Team was called out after the woman’s husband raised the alarm from the site near Hassness House.

A team spokesperson said: “Team members treated the lady at the scene and stretchered her to Hassness House from where she was transferred to Cumberland Infirmary, Carlisle by road ambulance.”

The rescue involved 18 Cockermouth MRT volunteers.
