A walker was rescued from one of Yorkshire’s Three Peaks after she injured herself in a slip.

Rescuers said Pen-y-ghent, where the incident happened, was in full winter conditions.

The 20-year-old slipped and dislocated her knee on the southern face of the hill on Saturday.

The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation was called out about 8.35am and went to the woman’s aid. She was assessed at the scene and her leg was splinted. The walker was also given pain relief before being stretchered off the fell to a team vehicle.

She was then taken to Stainforth to a waiting ambulance, which took her to hospital for further treatment.
