A walker was airlifted after injuring herself when she tumbled 100ft while descending one of the Yorkshire Three Peaks.

The 66-year-old was coming down the stone-pitched path from Ingleborough’s summit to Humphrey Bottom on Saturday when she slipped, falling and rolling about 30m.

The woman suffered head, leg and hand injuries in the fall.

The Cave Rescue Organisation was called out at 10.40am and went to the scene, on the northern slopes of the hill.

A spokesperson said: “After assessment, first aid and ‘packaging’, CRO members stretchered her about 100m to where an air ambulance could land. This flew her initially down to a road ambulance, but after re-assessment by paramedics, it flew her on to hospital.”
