Incident report

Buxton and Edale teams along with SARDA called when a couple from Birmingham rung into the ambulance service after the male in the party sustained an ankle injury whilst jumping in a dry river bed.  Both teams and SARDA were called when it became apparent that the couple were not sure of their location.  A Buxton section deployed to search up towards Grindslow Knoll located the couple half way up the Knoll on the sledge track. The casualty was treated on site by team members before being evacuated by stretcher to the roadhead at the Nags Head.
