At 14:00hrs Friday 24 September, Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was alerted to a man who had slipped and injured his knee while descending from Barton Fell above Ullswater.

The team was able to access the location from Roehead and travel towards Barton Fell using the 4×4 landrovers.

Once on scene the man’s injuries were assessed with first aid administered before being transferred back to Roehead to the waiting ambulance.

On arrival back at Pooley Bridge the grateful companions kindly bought refreshments and wished us a “rescue free” weekend.
