We were alerted yesterday to a walker on Scafell Pike who had injured his ankle and was no longer able to continue. The team was called out, with assistance gratefully received once again from Duddon and Furness MRT due to the expected long stretcher carry from this location. Once on scene he was medically assessed and given pain relief, before being transferred to a stretcher for the carry down to the valley. He was then transferred into an ambulance for the onward transfer to hospital. We wish the casualty well and a quick recovery.

Incident started at 13:17 and ended at 19:16 making 6 hrs in total. There were 11 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 208 076. Total rescuer hours: 66
