On Tuesday 13th September at 17.00hrs the Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was called by Cumbria Police to assist a woman who had fallen near Lanty’s Tarn, Glenridding and sustained an ankle Injury.

The Team responded and, fortunately, was able to drive a Landrover very close to the scene.  On arrival the lady, who was on holiday with her husband from Holland, was treated for a suspected fractured ankle, she was given pain relief and her ankle was splinted before she was placed on a stretcher and carried back to the Landrover.  

Once back at the Rescue Base the casualty was transferred to a North West Ambulance Service vehicle and taken to hospital for further treatment.  

13 team members were involved in the rescue which took 2.5 hours. The Team wishes the casualty a swift recovery and hopes the couple can enjoy the rest of their holiday.
