A walker was airlifted from England’s highest mountain after injuring herself.

The Great North Air Ambulance was scrambled at 3.30pm on Friday when the 21-year-old woman injured her knee on Scafell Pike.

The helicopter’s crew assessed and treated her at the scene before flying her to West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven, landing eight minutes after it took off from the mountain.

The walker’s condition was stable on arrival at the hospital.
