A woman was taken to hospital after injuring herself while walking in the Lake District.

Cockermouth Mountain Rescue Team was called out shortly after 1pm on Saturday to the site on the path beside Crummock Water.

The 42-year-old from the Glasgow area had slipped and suffered an ankle injury.

The team doctor and volunteers from Cockermouth MRT treated her at the scene before stretchering her to a waiting ambulance.

She was then taken to the West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven for further treatment.

The 2½-hour rescue involved 21 team members.
