Incident report

Buxton Team called out to a fallen climber at The Roaches, Staffordshire.

 A 25 year old male had reported fallen some 10 metres from the upper tier.  A doctor was first on scene and called for the emergency services.  The team responded from base and were quickly on scene.  Owing to the failing light and threatening cloud an air-ambulance was unable to assist so the casualty was carried down to the road where an ambulance was waiting.
