Another call on Sunday, this time from Cumbria Police. A walker had fallen, injuring both her legs and was unable to walk any further. The location is on the border of the area between Cockermouth MRT and Wasdale MRT. As Cockermouth team were still in the area, a joint approach was taken once again. Even so, numbers were a little low for another awkward location and so help from a Coastguard helicopter was again requested. Rescue 199 duly obliged and was able to access and evacuate the walker to hospital for further treatment.
We wish the walker a speedy recovery. Again thanks to the helicopter crew and Cockermouth MRT for the help.

Incident started at 17:47 and ended at 21:31 making 3.7 hrs in total. There were 15 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY207105. Total rescuer hours: 56
