Incident report

This was the third reported incident within two hours and sent Buxton team members scurrying back towards their home patch.  A new call-out was initiated to raise fresh local hands for a call to assist East Midlands Ambulance Service.  A mountain biker was reported to have parted company from his bike and sustained upper arm and shoulder injuries.  The team rendezvoused at The Cat & Fiddle and then sent a vehicle along the Shining Tor track to the incident site.  The rescuers met the casualty walking along the track and gave him a lift the ambulance waiting at the Cat & Fiddle.
