Incident report

Buxton Mountain Rescue Team was called out to a joint rescue with Edale Mountain Rescue Team on Kinder Scout, just before 2.00pm on Sunday 7th April.

The casualty was a lady from Sheffield who was a regular walker in the area. She phoned for help as she was experiencing pain in her ankle which had intensified during her walk.  She was aware that her progress was extremely slow and she was getting cold.

Her exact position was uncertain, but it was thought she was somewhere on the edge path near the top of Grindsbrook Clough. Team members soon located the casualty just off Grindsbrook Knoll. Soon after an initial assessment of her ankle, the stretcher arrived on site and the lady was transferred to the stretcher for the carry down to Edale.
