A walker was rescued after injuring herself while walking in the Lake District.

The woman, from Cumbria, suffered a head injury and a suspected broken wrist when she fell while walking up Grisedale towards Grisedale Tarn on Thursday.

Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was called out at 1pm and six of its members went to the walker’s aid, treating her at the scene before stretchering her from the fell to the team’s Land Rover ambulance.

She was then taken to the team’s base where a waiting ambulance took her to hospital for further treatment.

The two-hour rescue involved eight team volunteers.

The team was also called out about 10.30pm on Monday after a group of six young people undertaking a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award expedition strayed on to steep ground and got stuck, near Dove Crag.

A team spokesperson said: “The group was on a route from Great Langdale to Brothers Water when they lost the path just as darkness fell and they became stuck on steep ground and were no longer able to move.

“The team located the group near Stand Crags and escorted them safely down to the valley bottom.”
