A 60 year male had been descending down through the slate mines between Dale Head and High Spy with his wife. He slipped and injured his ankle and had managed to continue as far as the waterfall and was then unable to carry on. His wife continued to Low Snab Farm where she called in the incident. The team responded with 2 vehicles of members and quickly found him and gave him analgesia and splinted his ankle. As there was a delay allocating an ambulance, the team drove him to Keswick Cottage Hospital.
