A walker was rescued from a Lake District fell after she injured her ankle.

The woman was descending Rest Dodd on Saturday when she slipped on a grassy track, leaving her unable to bear weight on the leg.

Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team went to the walker’s aid. A spokesperson said: “The casualty and her companions had set off early that day from Hartsop for a walk around Brock Crags and surrounding peaks.”

Ten volunteers from the team made their way to the scene from Hayeswater.

The spokesperson said: “The team doctor stabilised the injury with a splint and she was then evacuated off the fell on a stretcher to the team Land Rover at the Hayeswater outflow.”

The incident lasted three hours.
