A walker was stretchered from a Lake District fell after injuring her ankle.

Keswick Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 1.15pm on Saturday to the incident at the top of the path leading from the High Spy ridge to Rosthwaite through the old Rigghead Quarries.

A team spokesperson said: “The lady had been out walking with a group and had fallen and was unable to walk.

“The casualty was located and after an assessment she was given some pain relief and her ankle splinted. Due to the location and the likelihood of a long stretcher carry Cockermouth MRT were asked to assist and seven of their team supported the effort.

“The casualty was carried down some steep terrain and once down at Rosthwaite was taken to the Keswick Cottage Hospital for further checks.

“Many thanks to Cockermouth MRT for the support.”
