A walker was rescued after injuring her ankle in a fall on a Lake District fell.

The woman, from Penrith, was walking up to Arthur’s Pike, overlooking Ullswater, on Saturday, when the incident happened.

Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was alerted about 12.50pm and team members, who were training at their base in preparation for casualty care exams, made their way on to the fell, and were with the injured walker within 30 minutes.

The team’s doctor treated the woman at the scene and she was then driven by Land Rover to a waiting ambulance.

The 90-minute rescue involved 16 volunteers from Patterdale MRT.
