Incident report

A joint Buxton and Edale snatch squad was called to Leadmill, near Hathersage on Wednesday afternoon.

A local woman, running alongside the River Derwent between Hathersage and Grindleford, had slipped, injuring her ankle. We understand she called for assistance and in addition to ourselves, an air ambulance, and an land ambulance were all en-route to this incident. The Edale team duty leader provided local knowledge which enabled the aircraft to access the casualty site. The land ambulance also managed to access the site via a local track.

Mountain Rescue resources were consequently no longer required, and the teams were stood down.
