A walker was airlifted from a Peak District hillside after injuring herself.

The 38-year-old Nottingham woman suffered a suspected broken leg when she fell while descending Thorpe Cloud in the South of the national park.

Derby Mountain Rescue Team was called out shortly after 1pm on Easter Saturday, after the woman slipped while walking with her family on the hill.

A team spokesperson said: “Two of our volunteers were first on scene, locating the casualty on the side of Thorpe Cloud. We were shortly joined by an Alstonfield first responder.” A West Midlands Ambulance Service crew also went to the site, along with the Midlands Air Ambulance, and she was given pain relief.

The spokesperson said: “The lady was placed on our mountain rescue stretcher and was lowered to the base of Thorpe Cloud using a rope belay. She was transferred to Midlands Air Ambulance Charity Helimed 09 and flown to the Royal Derby Hospital for further treatment.”
