We were called by Cumbria Police about a walker who was reported to have injured her leg and was struggling to walk. The informant had gone to the nearest farm to call for help. As the location was relatively close to road access and low down, a limited callout was made. However, before we could take much action, the farmer kindly went out of their way to drive on their quad bike to meet the walker and then give a lift back to the farm. The other member of the casualty party was then able to transport the walker in their own vehicle onwards for further assessment in hospital.
Many thanks to the farmer who helped out. We also would like to wish the walker well in her recovery.

Incident started at 14:15 and ended at 15:27 making 1.2 hrs in total. There were 13 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 16
