A walker who injured herself on a Lake District fell was rescued in a three-hour operation.

The 39-year-old from London was with her husband and young family on Hallin Fell on Tuesday when she suffered a knee injury.

Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was alerted by police about 10.50am.

A team spokesperson said: “The team rendezvoused in Pooley Bridge and 13 team members with two team vehicles proceeded to St Peter’s Church at the hause beneath Hallin Fell.

“Having located the woman close to the summit of the hill and assessed the injury to her knee, the team stretchered her back to the family’s car and she was driven to Penrith Minor Injuries Unit by her husband.”

The incident involved 16 volunteers from Patterdale MRT.
