Incident report

A call from East Midlands Ambulance Service following the report of an eighty year old woman having fallen and sustained a shoulder injury.   Early information regarding the location of the incident was very vague and was reported to be ” – on a footpath between Bakewell and Calton Farm!”

The joint Edale and Buxton MRT’s Snatch Squad was placed on standby until a better location was determined.  The incident transpired to have occurred near New Piece Woods on the hillside above Calton Lees Garden Centre on the Chatsworth Estate.  Shortly after the Snatch Squad was redirected to the incident a call from E.M.A.S. stood the teams down before arrival at the rendezvous.  It is presumed the casualty was evacuated by air-ambulance.  No other details known.
