The team had just returned to its base at Dove Holes from a day of supporting the Martin Doughty memorial walk when a call was received relating to a walker in the Goyt Valley.
Thirty team members responded from base and as a result of the radio-pager call to assist a 54 year old female from Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire. The lady was part of a large group supervised by a local outdoor centre when a simple slip resulted in a broken lower leg. Access to the casualty was made easier using the old railway line and team members were soon on scene. The lady was treated by team members and her leg splinted before she was carried on a rescue stretcher up the sides of Wildmoorstone Brook to an ambulance waiting on Goyt’s Lane.
