Incident report

The Team were called to support colleagues in Edale Mountain Rescue Team, following a request from Derbyshire Police to help recover a walker who had slipped in very muddy conditions and injured their ankle.

The walker was part of an organised walking group and was unable to move out of Abney Clough due to a very painful injury.
EMRT team members were on scene within twenty minutes of the initial callout and were able to give initial first aid and treatment, followed by a muddy carry off through the clough to the road.

Thank you to the local traffic for understanding the situation with our vehicles causing a bit of a bottle neck on the Abney road
