We were called by Police about a walker who was struggling to make their own way down from Scafell Pike. An advance team met the walker and provided analgesia to improve their movement. With an indication of a difficult stretcher carry our colleagues from Duddon and Furness Team also attended. Once lower on the mountain the casualty was transferred to the stretcher for sections where it was the fastest / safest way to move.
