Buxton Mountain Rescue Team were called out early Sunday afternoon to assist a walker who had injured their ankle in Dovedale. Dovedale is not our usual area and we were covering the Dovedale area for our colleagues in Derby MRT, whilst they were engaged on another task elsewhere. Being able to provide cover for each other is an important part of all of the teams abilities in the Peak District.
The lady had slipped and had injured her ankle. On arrival, she was assessed by team members and provided with pain relief, after which her leg was immobilised. She was then being placed in a warm casualty bag, placed on a stretcher and transported to the waiting WMAS ambulance.
Not being totally familiar with the area, we apologise for any inconvenience caused to local landowners during and after this call out, and thank you for your patience and understanding.
