A boulderer was rescued after injuring himself at a Peak District crag.

The 29-year-old from Nottingham fell at Robin Hood’s Stride near Birchover on Monday.

The man was bouldering with a friend when he came off the rock, missed his mat and injured his ankle.

Derby Mountain Rescue Team was called out at 9pm and stretchered him to a waiting ambulance, which then took him to hospital for further treatment.

An ambulance paramedic and community first responder joined 17 team members at the incident.
