The team attended, with support from Duddon and Furness team. Helicopter assistance was also requested and Rescue 936 from Caernarfon attended. Fortunately the cloud lifted just at the right time to enable the helicopter to get on scene, the limb was splinted and the casualty was airlifted to hospital.
Very many thanks to them and to Duddon and Furness team for their support. We wish the casualty a speedy recovery.
