Scales Fell

A walker slipped and fell on Scales Fell, Blencathra and suffered a lower leg injury. After treatment on scene by members of the team, the casualty was  packaged and secured into a stretcher before being taken down the fell. Four members of the team can be seen ‘sledging’ the stretcher downhill, with a back rope clearly in place to prevent the stretcher descending too fast.
