At 11.00 pm on Sunday night the team were called to assist a 34 year old female who had slipped and had a suspected broken ankle. At this time of night the Borrowdale valley road was fortunately free of the bank holiday traffic and so good progress was made to Mountain View. From here the team made the ascent up Thornythwaite Fell and quickly located and treated the casualty. She was then carried by stretcher to an awaiting ambulance and transported to the Cumberland Infirmary at Carlisle.
