Incident Details:

Whilst talking down two lost but uninjured walkers near Esk Hause, another call came from the ambulance service requesting help with an injured mountain biker. Apparently he had crashed after hitting a wet tree root resulting in a back injury. A small team was dispatched and stretchered the casualty to the ambulance which was waiting nearby.

Meanwhile the two walkers were guided to a path and made their way to safety. It should be noted that they may not have needed assistance if they had a compass.
