A Buxton and Edale Mountain Rescue snatch squad was called to Castleton, following reports of a collapsed walker.

The incident had occurred on the Great Ridge between Back Tor and Lose Hill. Due to the nature of the incident and location the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance also attended, and being able to land close by the incident site, dealt with the casualty.

The person was then flown to hospital, and the Buxton team was stood down en-route to the incident.
