A fellrunner was rescued after slipping on his descent of a Lake District fell.

Other runners went to his aid while waiting for Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team to reach the man.

The team was called out about 8.40pm on Thursday to Arthur’s Pike, above Ullswater, where the runner had suffered a suspected broken and dislocated shoulder.

A Patterdale MRT spokesperson said: “The team accessed the location using their 4×4 Land Rover ambulance and, on arrival, assessed the casualty for his injuries.

“After assessment the casualty was transported off the fell and taken to Penrith Minor Injuries Unit where he was transported to the Cumberland Infirmary, Carlisle for further treatment.

“The team would like to thank fellow fellrunners who assisted the casualty until the team arrived.”
