Other Agencies

As incident No.156 was concluding, a further call was received from Cumbria Police regarding a male walker who had fallen and injured his ankle. He was unable to weight bear. As the access to Beck Head is quicker and safer for a stretcher carry from the other side, the Team Leader asked for help from Cockermouth MRT. They were kindly able to help and so the tasking was transferred across. They subsequently successfully completed the rescue via stretcher to Honister. Many thanks to them for their help on what was a very busy weekend for WMRT.

Incident started at 14:19 and ended at 15:06 making 0.8 hrs in total. There were 9 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY209105. Total rescuer hours: 7
