Incident report

Buxton Mountain Rescue Team called to the southern lower slopes of Mam Tor where a male walker had taken a simple slip whilst descending an innocuous grassy slope.

Initial treatment by team members diagnosed a suspected fracture of the lower leg and suitable treatment and pain relief was administered.  The casualty site was only a couple of hundred metres from the road but the wet, muddy conditions demanded a careful stretcher carry to the waiting East Midlands Ambulance.
