A walker was airlifted from one of Yorkshire’s Three Peaks after injuring himself.

The 38-year-old slipped on ice while coming down from Ingleborough on Thursday, suffering a suspected dislocated knee.

The accident happened on the steep section of the hill between the summit and Chapel-le-Dale.

The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation was alerted about 1.50pm and went to the aid. They gave the main pain relief and then stretchered him to flatter ground on Humphrey Bottom.

The North West Air Ambulance flew to the scene, landing at the site. It then flew the injured walker to hospital for further treatment.
