Incident report

The team was called out along with our colleagues at Edale Mountain Rescue Team as part of the mid-week joint callout procedure.

The teams were requested by Derbyshire Constabulary to attend a person who had been walking on Grindslow Knoll. The lady had slipped and aggravated a pre-existing injury to her ankle. The lady was unable to continue her walk off the hill.

On arrival at the casualty site, the teams quickly assessed the casualty and administered pain relief. The casualty was then transferred to a mountain rescue stretcher for the journey down to Edale village and a waiting East Midlands Ambulance Service ambulance.

We wish the lady a speedy recovery.
