Call from Whitehaven Police asking for assistance to an Ambulance crew at Woodend, Egremont. A woman from Egremont had been walking in Clints Quarry, with her husband and their dog. She had slipped on the path, fallen over and broken her right ankle. A short carry using the Bell stretcher but over steep banks and through trees got us back to the road relatively quickly…. Just a little further and slippier than would have been sensible for two ambulance people to do on their own. We are always happy to assist them in such situations. (It shows a good spirit of co-operation exists between the Ambulance crews and the Team ) 10 team members were at the scene and three more at base.

Incident started at 14:00.
