We were called by Police about a walker who had stumbled and dislocated his shoulder whilst on a steep grass bank on the way up Haycock. He was given pain relief on scene. The casualty was in an awkward position on a steep grass slope and the stretcher had to be secured on a rope before he could be moved down the hill with help from the Duddon team and into the waiting coastguard helicopter from Prestwick.
