Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT
A group of walkers were descending Robinson on the ridge towards Blea Crags when one of the party slipped and went over on his ankle. He was unable to weight bear and walk any further so a 999 call was made for assistance. On arrival pain relief was provided by the team and the ankle assessed and strapped. Sledging the stretcher down a steep grassy slope brought the casualty to the team vehicles. After transferring the group to their car they made their own way to Carlisle hospital for a further check up.
